Artists Visit – Lock Hospital Centennial Commemoration Ceremony

Designers and sculptors of the Lock Hospital Tragedy Memorial Project, Charlie and Joan Smith of Smith Sculptors attended The Lock Hospital Centennial Commemoration Ceremony on the 9th of Jan 2019, in Carnarvon WA.

” It was a great honour and privilege to be invited to participate in this unique and momentous commemorative event and to share with members of the Workshop our endeavors to memorialize this largely forgotten tragedy.”

Out of this, the aspirations of the Aboriginal Community will be fulfilled through a year long program of cultural activities to be the initiation of truth telling, healing and remembering all those who suffered and died on these desolate Islands.
