Public forum with George Negus and Peace Exhibition by South Collective!
Is peace merely the absence of war? Join us, as George Negus explores the possibility of peace, in areas of conflict and war.
Negus returns to Tanks, following last year’s War in Profile public forum, to host this community event on finding peace and its true meaning. He is joined in Tank 5 by a panel of °South: PEACE photographers including David Dare Parker, Tim Page and Michael Coyne, as well as the co-ordinator Marianne Harris, to discuss the exhibition and its central theme. These individuals have spent much of their lives documenting conflict around the world and have come to feel deeply about the possibilities of peace. Tanks provides the place and space for this unique forum, with the public invited to engage and comment.

Tanks Arts Centre is proud to host the national launch of °South’s latest exhibition, PEACE.
Featuring work by Sean Flynn, Tim Page, Stephen Dupont, David Dare Parker, Jack Picone, Ben Bohane, Michael Coyne and Ashley Gilbertson, PEACE showcases a collection of images that provide a personal reflection of peace, captured amongst the environment of war. °South is a collective of dedicated and award-winning Australian documentary photographers who have covered conflicts from Vietnam in ‘65 to present day Afghanistan. PEACE challenged these photographers to probe their archives, finding new meaning in old images. There are no rainbows: these are images from the heart. Launch by Mayor of Cairns, Bob Manning.
