Creating Imagined Interiors

Caroline Simpson Library, The Mint
When

Tuesday 21 May from 6pm to 8pm

Cost

Starting from: $24

Join award winning production designer Melinda Doring; Craig McPherson, Senior Curator at the National Trust of Australia (NSW); and Joanna Nicholas from Museums of History NSW as they discuss different approaches to creating interiors for house museums and film and television productions.

Whether working on film and TV productions or historic houses and museums, what are the narratives that drive these interior designs and inspire the designers themselves? Melinda has sought inspiration from the collection of the Caroline Simpson Library when designing TV productions, including the recent Amazon Prime Video series The lost flowers of Alice Hart. Craig worked with the library in the reinterpretation of Everglades House, Leura, while Joanna used the library’s collection in the revitalisation of the drawing room at Vaucluse House.

The evening will include a viewing of creative sources in the Caroline Simpson Library collection used for each project as well as presentations from the three speakers. A Q&A will be led by Research Librarian Dr Matthew Stephens. Refreshments included with each ticket.
