Paper to principle: How art and ideas in Beechworth influenced Australian identity
Explore the great mix of women and men in science, art, botany, building, law, democracy and culture who came to Beechworth after gold was discovered in 1852.
Beechworth’s goldrush attracted thousands of people from all parts of the world. And among them were those who went on to influence Australia post-colonisation development in many significant ways. Discover who they were, where they came from, why they came here, what they achieved, and how their lives intersected. You’ll hear from Beechworth History + Heritage chair and former Ovens and Murray Advertiser editor Jamie Kronborg about the connections and the patterns that emerged from these relationships to influence Australia into Federation and beyond.
