    In Changed forever, stories of migrants who have resettled in Australia from war-torn countries are presented beside those of recent veterans of overseas service in the Australian Defence Force. This moving exhibition explores the impacts of global and civil conflict in changing lives and shaping contemporary Australia.

    All have been redefined by the emotional and physical dislocation of war, and seek to reconcile this with their new lives.

    Enhanced with art, objects, photographs, audio-visuals and interactives, their personal stories reflect the range and depth of experiences in conflict and life post war.

    Changed forever will tour these venues:

    September – October 2019 Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne
    24 October – 1 December 2019 Hume Global Learning Centre, Craigieburn
    February – March 2020 RSL Memorial Hall, Bendigo
    April – May 2020 Frankston Arts Centre, Frankston 
    8 August – 18 October 2020 Yarra Ranges Regional Museum, Lilydale
