Stories of the Brooker Highway

The Story Island Project

Exhibition opening 1pm Thurs 24 Aug
Exhibition runs Fri 25 Aug – Sat 16 Sep

"Stories of the Brooker Highway" celebrates the rich histories and stories that surround the Brooker Highway.

Unearthed with the help of the Story Island Project during early 2017, these stories and

images capture some of the overlooked, the surprising and the unusual features of a stretch of road that is so familiar to us all.

The stories and images featured in the exhibition have been collected from and created by communities across Hobart’s northern suburbs.

Stories of the Brooker Highway also includes creative stories and illustrations from young people who attend schools on the Brooker Highway, reimagining the life of the highway in new and exciting ways.

The exhibition will be launched by artist Eileen Brooker. Eileen is the daughter of Edward Brooker, the Tasmanian Government minister who first conceived of the Highway, and after whom the Highway is named. Tasmanian author Danielle Wood will also speak at the launch about her memories of the Highway. We'll also have several readings from school students whose creative writing is featured in the exhibition.

Free entry, all welcome.
