‘What we call the beginning is often the end’ – so wrote British poet T.S. Eliot in Four Quartets (thank you to Former Child Migrant, Rupert Hewison for drawing my attention to this poem having quoted from it in one of his posts).
It’s nearly time for the exhibition to open and for the active phase of the Inside blog to come to an end.
What does this mean?
Inside: Life in Children’s Homes and Institutions exhibition opens in Canberra on 16 November. That day will also mark the end of accepting contributions to the Inside blog.
What will happen to the blog?
In the exhibition
The blog is part of the exhibition. It will be featured as an exhibit in its own right on a computer in the exhibition.
On the Museum website
We will keep the blog online as a permanent record of the contributions, insights and reflections of the Inside community.
But no new contributions will be posted once the exhibition opens.
There is still time to contribute …
If you want to be included, please submit your post by Sunday 2 October.
A personal note
The opening of the exhibition will also mark and ending and beginning for me personally. My last day at the Museum will be 16 November.
