Australiana Society annual report 2018, Jim Bertouch & George Lawrence


As you all know we are in our 40th year and will finish our celebrations with a three-day symposium on 18–21 October 2019 at the State Library of NSW. This is going to be a very big and significant event. We have more than 25 confirmed speakers and very many different areas of Australiana will be covered in the presentations. Stephen Bowers, the well-known contemporary ceramicist and ex-director of the Jam Factory in Adelaide, will be one of three keynote speakers, along with John Hawkins and Julian Bickersteth. Richard Neville, Mitchell Librarian and Director of Education and Scholarship, will be talking about how the NSW Library collection was put together and will showcase treasures from the collection.
