EVENT DATES: Tuesday 20 November 2018
The Barossa Regional Gallery will be hosting an exhibition, INTERNMENT, from the Migration Museum of SA on Internment during WW1 and WW2.
Curators of the exhibition have been seeking stories, photos and memorabilia from local Barossa people that experienced internment (or know someone who did) during either of the World Wars. These stories along with the SA Migration Museum pieces will be exhibited and will be accompanied by a live history interactive performance highlighting the lives and struggles of the women left to ‘hold the fort’ during this sensitive time.

ABOUT THE HALL
The building housing the Barossa Regional Gallery was opened on 16 May 1913 as the hall of the Tanunda Club. The building became the Soldiers Memorial Hall after the First World War. In the 1960s, an unmatching cream brick façade was erected. When the building was refurbished as the Barossa Regional Gallery, this façade was rendered and painted and the front interior spaces refurbished as galleries for the display of art.
