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 exhibition, no tickets required.
