A Picture and a Thousand Words

July 25, 2013


I’m hosting a History Week event!

Is a picture really worth a thousand words? Help decide over a cocktail in an award-winning small bar at this unique event. See (and hear) historians Matthew Allen, Hannah Forsyth, Dave Earl and Nick Irving discuss the context and creation of some captivating historical images. In just ten minutes, the speakers will delve into the histories of four fascinating, but largely unexplored subjects: Norman Lindsay’s women, the Vietnam moratoriums, the role of alcohol in Australian society, and the creation of farm colonies for “subnormal” boys and men.

When: Monday, 9 September 2013 from 06:30 pm to 07:15 pm

Where: Grasshopper Bar, 1 Temperance Lane Lane, Sydney

Cost: Free, but bookings essential.
