Historic Abuse Network Memorial
Public Art : Historic Abuse Network Memorial also
known as the Child Abuse Memorial
Sculptor : © Gavan Fenelon
Date : December 1st, 2004.
Description : A bronze lifesize statue of a
barefooted boy, with tattered suitcase in hand, staring sadly dejected across the Square. I don't know if it
was intentional, but his stare travels right across the lawn, to a church.
Funded By : Gambling Community Benefit Fund
Location : Relocated in 2006, to Cathedral Square,
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
|In memory of all the children who suffered and of those who did not survive abuse in
Church and State Childrens' institutions' and homes in Queensland.
"For there is nothing hidden, except that it should be made known, neither was anything made secret out
that it should come to light."
