18 September–January 2016

Papua New Guinea’s Independence in September 1975 was a momentous event for the new country. To commemorate this significant event, the ANU Library will host a vibrant exhibition of items from the Pacific Research Archives, Pacific Manuscripts Bureau, CartoGIS, Drill Hall Gallery, and items from the Library’s own Pacific Collection.

The exhibition will showcase original documents focusing on the self-government period and eventual independence, as well as paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs and documentary films celebrating the cultural diversity and shared history between Papua New Guinea, ANU, Canberra, and Australia.

The exhibition is supported by the Papua New Guinea High Commission, the National Museum of Australia, Deakin University and features contributions from former and present staff and students from the ANU with a long lasting affection and interest for PNG.
