The Lagoon – Greg Ades

Greg Ades was the guest speaker on the topic of The Lagoon at the PMHPS October 2022 meeting.

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.

This talk was presented to the Port Melbourne Historical and Preservation Society on 25 October 2022.
