Opening 7 July, the Memorial to Misadventure is an emotionally charged installation by Sue Heydon that looks at the fateful trip taken by the wives and children of early Nelson settlers on the Lloyds sailing ship.

Sue has used Grampians clay, the hair of survivors descendants and a multimedia display to weave together this immersive experience which both mourns the loss of so many young lives lost at sea and celebrates the resilience and survival of our immigrant families.
