Fellowship!

I am one of the successful recipients of a fellowship from The Australian Prime Ministers’ Centre at the Museum of Australian Democracy – Old Parliament House (pictured above). They will support me in the research and drafting of my graphic novel (see previous posts tagged “Enid Lyons” for details). I will present my script and page roughs at a seminar in July next year.

Pictured below is how the Museum of Australian Democracy looked during Dame Enid Lyons’ time there, when it functioned as our federal parliament.
