Launch of Kaleidoscope exhibition

EMERITUS PROFESSOR RICHARD BROOME AM FRHSV
President of the Royal Historical Society of Victoria
and the RHSV Council
invite you to attend the launch of
the RHSV’s major exhibition in 2022 which celebrates the women
who were crucial in building the RHSV from its 1909 beginning
To be launched by
This exhibition is biography imagined through the lens of a Kaleidoscope. The viewer is offered fragments of the lives represented here. There is no linear narrative. Each time the kaleidoscope turns, a different story emerges. There are repeating patterns but different emphases and new ways of seeing, new reflections, new refractions. No one story dominates and one story does not fit all.
in 2021, during Women’s History Month we launched the RHSV Women’s Biographical Dictionary, an online resource which builds profiles of women who have been involved in the RHSV over its 113 year history. This project is masterminded by Dr Cheryl Griffin and from the online resource, Cheryl has curated this exhibition, to launch in 2022, which looks at the lives of 50 of those women.
Curator: Dr Cheryl Griffin
Exhibition Designer: Katrin Strohl
Exhibition Production: Dr David Thompson & Helen Stitt
As at most RHSV events, refreshments will be served during the launch.
Please note – this launch was originally planned for 31 March and it has been brought forward by a day to the 30 March
This is an RHSV Women’s History Month event
