The local community and visitors are welcome to join the opening of the travelling exhibition ‘Dancing in Fetters’, on this Sunday, 21 May at 1pm at the Royal Engineers Office at Kingston.
The exhibition brings to life the stories, songs, dances and experiences of those 162,000 men, women and children who transported to Australia. This exhibition is part of a national tour and draws on the doctoral research of Dr. Heather Blasdale Clarke.
‘Dancing in Fetters’ will be open at the R.E.O until the end of August, so plenty of time to get your dancing shoes on and come join us for a jig or two.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Convict Culture Week is taking place from 21-27 May, with a great program of song, dance and presentations.
We are pleased to host a number of talks and presentations during Convict Culture Week – free for locals and visitors! Please contact Norfolk Island Museum on ph: 23788 or or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to confirm times.
See you daun’taun!
