Join us for the launch of this new exhibition, online.  Local actor Ben Tari will present seldom-heard voices connecting us to the works in the exhibition, including writings from the Mayday Hills Research group, alongside excerpts from Bedlam at Botany Bay by James Dunk and poetry by Frank Prem and Sandy Jeffs.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from the project researchers, and ask questions about their findings and the site.

Collections from the Asylum extends the 2016 exhibition Up Top: A Sense of Place for Mayday Hills Hospital. It is a partnership between Charles Sturt University, Southern Cross University and Albury LibraryMuseum.
