Join us on Saturday 11 November to explore Devonport’s crime heritage and how the town and community dealt with everyday offending in the past through the real life stories of those charged and convicted of criminal offences through an exhibition in the former police cells at the Guildhall.
Experience what it would have been like to have been locked up in the cells or sent to Devonport Prison, step on board a Virtual Reality convict ship and be transported to Australia from Devonport Dock hearing the stories of those who were actually transported for committing what, in some cases, would today be perceived as relatively minor offences.
Everyday Offending in Devonport Past and Present
The University is also hosting two witness seminars at the Devonport Guildhall in association with RIO - Real Ideas Organisation - on Tuesday 7 November.
