The Australasian South African Alliance (ASAA) is comprised of Southern African
expatriates and Australians. The group convened in 2013 with the intention to curate
a photographic history exhibition to celebrate Australia’s role in the Anti-Apartheid
movement in Australia from the 1960s to 1994.
The exhibition, Memories of the Struggle, was developed in partnership with the
Australian High Commission in Pretoria and the South African Department of
International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO), and with the financial and creative
assistance of The City of Sydney, Customs House Sydney, The Search Foundation,
The University of Cape Town – Australian Trust and individuals.
The exhibition is a photographic timeline of events that weaves together a narrative of
Australia’s involvement in the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa over a period
of more than 30 years and illustrates Australia’s substantial historical links with, and
support for, the anti-apartheid movement. The content includes the Australian
Government’s leadership in pursuing financial sanctions and sports boycotts, as well
as non-government activities led by trade unions, churches and individual activists.
The exhibition is opening at the Castle of Good Hope on 11 October 2018 and will run until 30 November 2018.
