great-war-exhibition-1200In 2015, Grace researched and curated an exhibition, The Great War and Rowing on Albert Park Lake, held in conjunction with the 2015 Albert Park Lake Masters Regatta and the National Trust of Australia’s Australian Heritage Festival to celebrate the ANZAC Centenary.

The Great War was an 82-item exhibition which explored the experiences of Albert Park and South Melbourne Rowing Club members who enlisted during the First World War between 1914 and 1919.  Bringing to light the wartime history of these clubs which had otherwise been lost, Grace utilised online resources from the Australian War Memorial, the National Archives of Australia, the National Library of Australia’s Trove, the AIF Project, the Australian Rowing History website, as well as club records and The Victorian Oarsman to create this exhibition.

Further details can be found on the APSM Rowing Club’s website.
