Mar 14, 2019: Edwina Kerr: Balmain Maps & Memories

What are human rights and how does Australia’s performance stack up against its international human rights obligations?

Join us for the presentation of this online project that brings together the written and mapped history of Balmain with personal stories.

Edwina is seeking local stories for the project and will be inviting guests to share their memories in writing, which she will be adding to the website.
