Description

The illustrated picture book Ten Pound Pom (Black Dog Books, 2017), by Carole Wilkinson and Liz Anelli, shares the real life tale of Carole Wilkinson’s journey of migration from England to Australia. In the 1950s and 1960s, thousands of British migrants were welcomed to Australia as part of assisted passage migration schemes. This exhibition explores this story, showing how Liz Anelli crafted the illustrations through layering of sketches, collage, ephemera and digital techniques. Especially curated for children and families, this exhibition is supported by a self-guided trail. FREE. No bookings required.
