AFP’s heart and soul on display at Canberra Museum and Gallery
The AFP is pleased to launch the Threads of Policing exhibition at the Canberra Museum and Gallery (CMAG). The exhibition will open on Saturday, 6 November 2021, and run until 5 March 2022. It will showcase the varied work of the AFP, and celebrate its achievements, while honouring the dedication and commitment of its members.
The exhibition has been a labour of love for AFP Museum Curator Chris Cranston and the team, who have painstakingly selected over 100 items for display from the AFP’s vast holdings.
“We are dedicated to preserving significant moments in AFP history and ensuring future generations know of the incredible work and achievements of AFP members throughout our 40-year history,” she said.
The exhibition features AFP members’ contributions to the AFP 40th Anniversary Quilts. The quilts were a collaborative effort by AFP members who contributed patches that represented what the AFP meant to them.
