A License to Print Money

Join us this school holidays to discover the ingenuity and creativity of people under pressure
Difficult times often bring out the creativity in many people. For the Dunera boys, their internment in regional Australia encouraged a wave of art-making, social organisation and even printing their own money to use in their camps.
In this workshop children will learn about the ingenuity of the Dunera boys in a short guided tour of our exhibition, before having a chance to design and print their own currency.
This activity is designed for children to be dropped off at the beginning and picked up at the end of the session. Suitable for kids aged 6+.
About Enemy Aliens: the Dunera boys in Orange, 1941
In September 1940, more than 2000 “enemy aliens” were transported from Britain to Australia on board the HMT Dunera. Interned in camps in regional New South Wales and Victoria, the story of the Dunera boys, is an intrinsic part of the history of Australia in the Second World War and in its aftermath.
This exhibition, featuring never-before-seen artworks by the Dunera boys, tells the little-known story of the internees’ time at the Orange Showgrounds in 1941.
