Post-war, thousands of migrant women from Britain and Europe arrived in Tasmania, and along with migrant men and children they were part of the largest number of free migrants to arrive in such a short period of time in the island state.

This exhibition will give Tasmanians the chance to hear the fascinating stories of these migrant women, told through their snapshots and their own voices retelling their experiences.

These stories have been collected by Dr Nicolá Goc, Researcher at the University of Tasmania, by using snapshot photographs to assist the women in recalling their memories of their migrant experience.

Join us for a special Friends of TMAG members' event to hear Nicolá discuss the project and be joined by Elspeth Wishart, TMAG's Senior Curator History, for a tour of the exhibition.
