Somewhere in France, Somewhere in Australia


Join us for a public symposium in July

Together with the University of Queensland, we have been discovering what objects Queenslanders may have that reflect the experiences of Australians who served in France.

2014 marks a century since the start of the First World War. Our aim is to better understand the stories associated with these objects and the enduring connections formed between France and Australia during the First World War.

In July 2014, French and Australian museum curators and historians will gather during a special public symposium at the Museum. You can join us to hear talks from international experts and to find out about some of the amazing stories uncovered during the project.

Time: 9.00pm - 5.00pm
