Gorman 100 Exhibition

Step back into the history of Gorman, to its beginnings as a Commonwealth hostel in the 1920’s in an exhibition celebrating 100 years of Gorman House.

Discover the stories from historic Gorman House in its 100th year. Built in 1924, Gorman House was originally conceived of as a hostel for federal public servants who were relocating to the fledgling Australian capital Canberra on Ngunnawal Country. In the course of its 42 years as a hostel, thousands have called this place home, including former Prime Minister John Howard, whose happy snaps have remained in the Gorman House collection.
View photos from the archives and uncover the stories from its life as a federal workers hostel in the 1920’s through to the arts centre that it is today. Take the opportunity to share your own connection to Gorman and leave a memory to be included in history.

Please note that the exhibition is in F Block Gallery, Gorman Arts Centre.
