THE ROD WALLACE MEMORIAL LECTURE 2022

The Friends have established the Rod Wallace Memorial Lecture series to commemorate the pioneering achievements of Roderick Wallace AM, the ‘godfather’ of the NFSA. Each year a public figure will be invited to deliver a lecture of lasting import which will be recorded and be permanently accessible. While the choice of topic is left to the speaker, the lecture series aims  to reflect aspects of the preservation and dissemination of the audiovisual heritage.

The lecture is titled Why bother? Reflections on the duty of care to Australians’ creativity. It is available to read as simple text  or text with pictures. The event was captured live, and the video record was subsequently edited to include the film and audio clips that were presented to the audience as the talk proceeded.
