Australia at Federation in 1901
1915 is often identified as the year when the ‘birth of Australia as a nation’ happened, the birth of the nation through death, blood and sacrifice. We need to consider that the nation wasn’t, in fact, born in 1915 through blood, guts and sacrifice. It was actually formed in 1901 by Federation and this exhibition, will allow us to develop these idea.
