Join us for a viewing of Kate Durham’s SIEV X artwork, followed by a panel discussion featuring Professor Gillian Whitlock in conversation with Julian Burnside AO QC, Kate Durham, Professor Andreas Schloenhardt and Adele Rice AM. The panel will explore legal, educational and artistic responses to the plight of refugees, and the vital role played by libraries and archives in preserving their narratives.
The University of Queensland’s Fryer Library houses important collections that document the experience of refugees, including the Julian Burnside and Kate Durham Collection and the Elaine Smith Collection.
