Symposium - Batavia (1629): Giving Voice to the Voiceless Other events...
When the Dutch East India vessel Batavia was wrecked on Morning Reef in the Abrolhos Islands in June 1629, none of the more than 300 people on board could have imagined the enduring historical impact of this maritime disaster and its bloody aftermath. Those events have inspired a multitude of books, several documentaries for television and radio, a musical, an opera, and numerous art works and exhibitions.

This free public symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition Batavia: Giving voice to the voiceless. Discover more about the enduring historical impact of the maritime disaster of the wrecking of the Dutch East India vessel Batavia in the Abroholos Islands in 1629 through the eyes of artists, historians and archaeologists. It is also an opportunity to hear from artists whose work is displayed in the exhibition.

Co–hosted by the UWA Cultural Precinct and the Institute of Advanced Studies.
Speaker(s) Speakers: Robert Cleworth (Artist, New South Wales), Alec Coles OBE, CEO (Director WA Museum), Dr Daniel Franklin (The University of Western Australia), Professor Jane Lydon (The University of Western Australia), Professor Alistair Paterson (The University of Western Australia), Corioli Souter (The University of Western Australia; Western Australian Museum), Dr Paul Uhlmann (Artist, Western Australia; Edith Cowan University), Arvi Wattel (The University of Western Australia).
