Upcoming exhibition

Our next exhibition, Celebrating Willoughby City’s Heritage, Cultures and Communities.

This photo of Korean women in their traditional dress posing with the Walter and Marion Griffin puppets
of the Castlecrag Progress Association at the Willoughby Spring Fair of 12 September 2009 has
been selected as the feature image for the forthcoming Celebrating Willoughby’s Heritage, Cultures
and Communities Exhibition. Bob McKillop photowill open on 19 April 2018 as our contribution to the Australian National Trust’s 2018 Heritage Festival. Its theme is ‘My Culture, My Story: Celebrating the diversity of cultures that have shaped our shared heritage’.

The exhibition will examine the cultural diversity of our communities in Willoughby City, explore the changing technologies that have shaped their identities and present a selection of prominent individuals who have made outstanding contributions to specific communities within Willoughby. It will also focus on the changes in our work and leisure that have emerged in response to new technologies. A selection of objects, photographs and art works from our collections will help to interpret the key themes of the exhibition.

The final elements of the exhibition are still being formulated, so more detailed information on its elements will be presented in the April issue of Willoughby History Chatters.
