The sixties and seventies was a time of great political and social turmoil, generational division and intense personal passion and commitment. Blue Jeans Jungle Greens examines both the conflict in Vietnam and the anti-war campaign on the home front, as well as other social movements of the time. This display draws on the stories – and the photo albums – of South Australians, and reminds us of the power of the past in people’s lives.
Professionally designed and produced, Blue Jeans Jungle Greens: revisiting the sixties and seventies received funding support from the Commonwealth Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the ANZAC Day Commemoration Fund, an initiative of the State Government of South Australia. It has been well received in community venues around South Australia since it began touring in 2008.
The display comprises eight double-sided pull-up banners.
