Winston Churchill Fellowships

Winston Churchill Fellowships in Tasmania is a touring exhibition from the Churchill Fellows’ Association of Tasmania, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery.

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust was established in 1965 to manage the Fellowship award scheme. The Trust provides an opportunity for Australians to travel overseas to conduct research in their chosen field that is not already available in Australia.

Over the 50 years that the Fellows have run, 191 Tasmanians have been awarded fellowships. This exhibition explores the enrichment a handful of these Fellows have brought to the Australian community.

The public are invited to attend the official opening at the Burnie Regional Museum on Friday 15 April at 1pm. There will also be a series of lunchtime talks featuring our very own Churchill Fellows, more information about these to come.

The Museum will also be opening on ‘special Saturdays’ – 16 April, 23 April, 30 April and 7 May.
