Description

On Remembrance Day 2015, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery will host a curated conversation delving into the legacy of the Great War. With the ANZAC legend cemented into the national psyche, War and Memory: Tasmania and the Great War will ask how World War One impacted on Tasmania and how it divided many Tasmanians at the time. 100 years on, how have the stories we tell ourselves of the Great War been used, and what stories are still to be told? This event is being held in conjunction with TMAG's World War One exhibition The Suspense is Awful: Tasmania and the Great War, which is on show at the museum until 28 February 2016.

MC: Chris Wisbey, 936 ABC Radio

Speakers: Carolyn Holbrook, Monash University and author of ANZAC: the Unauthorised Biography; Stefan Petrow, Associate Professor of History, University of Tasmania; Adrian Howard, Friends of Soldiers Memorial Avenue and Tony Brown, Former Senior Curator of Indigenous Cultures, TMAG.

Pay bar and refreshments available.
