The Permanent Resident: Roanna Gonsalves Author Talk

21-Aug-2017

Roanna Gonsalves’ short stories unearth the aspirations, ambivalence and guilt laced through the lives of 21st century immigrants, steering through clashes of cultures, trials of faith, and squalls of racism. Sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes playful, they cut to the truth of what it
means to be a modern outsider. Roanna Gonsalves came to Australia as an international student in 1998. She is the recipient of the Australian Prime Minister’s Australia Asia Endeavour Award 2013. In 2015, Roanna’s four-part series on contemporary Indian literature was broadcast on ABC Radio National’s Earshot program. The Permanent Resident is her first book.

EXHIBITION: Liverpool to Holdsworthy Railway WWI- a forgotten military railway.

2-Sep-2017


The Liverpool to Holdsworthy Military Railway Line is one of New South Wales’ ‘forgotten’ military railway lines. Its significance lies as the only Australian military railway line partly constructed by WWI internees.
It transported WWI ordnance, ammunition, stores, cavalry and artillery horses, military equipment and personnel with part of the line still in service during WWII.
NSW Railways constructed the first 2.2km from Liverpool Station east across the Georges River and the remainder on military land with Department of Defence employing internees’ labour from Holdsworthy Internment Camp (then known as the German Concentration Camp).
Sidings were located at Liverpool Army Camp, Holdsworthy Internment Camp, Anzac Rifle Range, Remount Depot, Moorebank Stores, Ammunition and Ordnance Depots and later Cable Makers.
This exhibition commemorates the centenary of the line’s construction, the circumstances under which it was constructed and the changed relationships between the Australian, German, Austro-Hungarian and former Ottoman nations and peoples.

Originally spelt as Holdsworthy until after WWII, when the ‘d’ was dropped – area was named after Holsworthy, Devon, England where Governor Macquarie married in 1807.

Iconic Australian Houses: an exhibition by Karen McCartney

29-Oct-2017


Image Courtesy of Sydney Living Museums

Presented in partnership with Architecture Foundation Australia, is a behind-the-scenes exploration of 30 of the most important Australian homes of the past 60 years. 
The exhibition explores the design and building of these houses, as well as the experiences of those who live in them, and illustrates the emergence of a distinctively Australian approach to home design. Vivid photography, rich illustrations, 3D models and filmed interviews look beyond the physical structures to tell the story of how good design can enrich lifestyle. 
Iconic Australian Houses includes a sneak peek at one of the award-winning Australian houses featured in Karen McCartney’s forthcoming book, Superhouse: architecture & interiors beyond the everyday, which looks at stand-out contemporary architecture from across the world.

The Blake Poetry Prize

31-Dec-2017


 Blake Poetry Prize
The Blake Poetry Prize challenges Australian poets to explore the spiritual and religious in a new work of 100 lines or less.
From 2017 Liverpool City Library, in partnership with Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, will deliver The Blake Poetry Prize as a biennial event. Liverpool City Library and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre will maintain the guiding principles of The Blake Poetry Prize in continuing to engage contemporary poets, both national and international, in conversations concerning faith, spirituality, religion, hope, humanity, social justice, belief and non-belief. The Blake Poetry Prize is an aesthetic means of exploring the wider experience of spirituality with the visionary imagining of contemporary poets.
The Blake Prize takes its name from William Blake, a poet and artist of undoubted genius, who integrated religious and artistic content in his work. The Blake Poetry Prize challenges contemporary poets of disparate styles to explore the spiritual and religious in a new work of 100 lines or less.
The Blake Poetry Prize is strictly non-sectarian. The entries are not restricted to works related to any faith or any artistic style, but all poems entered must have a recognisable religious or spiritual integrity.
To Apply: First, please pay your $20 entry fee. You will need the confirmation number when you fill out the entry form (download here). Poems and entry forms may be sent by email to blakepoetryprize@casulapowerhouse.com or hard copies may be submitted to:
