SYLVIA CURLEY ORATION: Seeking Canberra’s soul

Sun 25 May: 2–4pm

Writer, historian and heritage consultant Dr Lenore Coltheart wonders if Sylvia Curley was right to think the soul of the city is found in its heritage – or even in its history. Drawing on her detailed research on people and places in Canberra and reflecting on a decade on the ACT Heritage Council, Lenore does some serious soul-searching. With her history of the Albert Hall to be published later this year, some secrets of Canberra’s ‘city hall’ feature in this year’s stimulating oration.

Free, RSVP by Wed 21 May.
