Looking Forward Looking Back 2022 will celebrate the Centenary of the NSW State funeral of Henry Lawson.
This is the start of planning a two-day festival in September 2022

This report is being written by Douglas Holmes to give feedback to members who had registered (21) or attended one of the Zoom meetings in 2021/22 plus people on the SUPER CRO eNews Mailchimp.

The reason for the meeting is to continue the work from the previous meetings to celebrate the life of Henry Lawson on the 100th anniversary of his state funeral on 6th September 2022.

If you do not want to be on the list you can unsubscribe from the bottom of the Mailchimp eNews.

I have been asked several times what my interest in Henry Lawson is and why do you want to organise a 2-day forum about his life.

My interest is that I have always liked his poetry and short stories, however, I became aware through working at St Vincents Hospital in Darlinghurst for 12 years that he was diagnosed in 1902 with Bipolar Affective Disorder and stayed in Caritas a number of times up until 1914.

This document A History of the Lunatic Reception Centre in Darlinghurst gave me a greater understanding of the part that the Caritas unit at St Vincent’s Hospital played in Lawson’s life and inspired me to do something to celebrate his life.
