Meeting, 25 October 2022 @ 7.30pm

The Lagoon, 1870s. Original photograph by Charles Nettleton.

Greg Ades will be our guest speaker on the topic of The Lagoon.

Greg has been a practicing artist for over 40 years. For a number of years he was artist in residence at Port Melbourne Primary School. At one stage, with Artists in Schools funding, he created a large painting with the students of what they imagined Port Melbourne would look like today if the lagoon had been cared for and still existed today. The painting is used as an educational tool in teaching about Port Melbourne’s history.

The Port Melbourne Historical Society meet at 7.30pm on the fourth Tuesday each month bar December in the Council Chamber of the first floor of Port Melbourne Town Hall # and online via Zoom.

# Access via lift or stairs.
