Come along to this practical and fascinating session with the University of Tasmania's Dr Nicola Goc, researcher for the exhibition Snapshot Photography and Migrant Women: A Tasmanian Experience, on show from 18 March - 22 May 2016.

The exhibition tells the fascinating stories of migrant women from Britain and Europe who arrived in Tasmania in the post-war period. Through oral history and family snapshots the women tell the stories of their migration.

Nicolá has been recording oral histories for more than three decades and in this workshop she will explain through her own research and curatorial experience how teachers and students can successfully create and compile oral histories.
