2015 marks fifty years since the death of British wartime Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, and the establishment of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.

The Trust was formed with the objective of perpetuating and honouring Sir Winston's memory by awarding Churchill Fellowships, allowing talented and deserving Australians to travel overseas to conduct research in their chosen field.

This exhibition celebrates the efforts of 191 Tasmanian Churchill Fellows who have travelled the world since 1965 in pursuit of excellence in their field for the enrichment of Australian society.
