The Lanney Pillar Discussion Forum
The Lanney Pillar is the second artwork installed as part of the Crowther Re-interpreted project. A collaboration between Roger Scholes and Greg Lehman, the artwork includes a 12 minute film: The Whaler's Tale which tells of the extraordinary life of Tasmanian Aboriginal William Lanne (1835 - 1869).
We encourage you to watch The Whaler's Tale and share your thoughts through the online discussion forum.
This forum is intended as a safe space for you to explore ideas about the reinterpretation of the Crowther statue and to have conversations in a productive and respectful way.
