A Place for me:
Saving the Ballarat Orphanage
We are currently investigating the debate surrounding the demolition of Ballarat Orphanage. Through interviews, media clippings and historical documents we trace the relationship between people and place to better understand the benefits and challenges of commemorating and forgetting places of difficult histories. How were the different perspectives handled and negotiated? Who are the ‘winners’ and what was ultimately lost?
