Public art – Memorial for Past Adoption Practices

About

In 2012 the Premier, Lara Giddings made an apology to those in the Tasmanian community that had been touched by past practice of forced adoption.

Artist Kristina Nichols was commissioned to create a memorial sculpture called Tree of Hope to act as a powerful symbol of the apology. The steel sculpture is positioned in a quiet corner of the Sequoiadendron Lawn in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hobart where people can sit and reflect in a beautiful place.
