A message from the Editor, Friends Review

Our goal for Friends Review is to include coverage of as many Friends and Members activities across Australia as we can in each issue—and that goes for events, programs and exhibitions in member institutions as well. In future we will produce two issues per year—June/July and November/December.

Please send contributions and images by the copy deadlines: end of April for June/July, end of October for November/December. Editor Ros Russell, email

Now that Friends Review is an e-newsletter, it can be sent to all your Friends and Members,
or a link to the PDF can be provided on your website.
