OPENING SATURDAY EVENTS

16 FEBRUARY 2013

°SOUTH photographers Michael Coyne and Ben Bohane will be at MGA from 2PM to chat about their experience of ‘What peace looks like’ from their assignments around the world.

Then iconic Australian actor Jack Thompson, AM will open MGA’s upcoming exhibition PEACE on Saturday 16 February 2013 at 3.00pm.

Thompson will discuss his own peace-making experiences when, as the UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador in the 1990s, he made a documentary film about the lives of Cambodian children displaced by the Khmer Rouge. With his late best mate photographer Peter Carrette, Thompson helped establish a child protection agency called ‘Krousar Thmey’ (’new family’ in Khmer) that enabled the lost children of ‘Site II’ (the largest refugee camp in the world at the time) to return to their homeland of Cambodia.
