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

Inscription :

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."

HAN and SOICA gratefully acknowledge the support and assistance of the Brisbane City Council and Queensland Council, Department of Communities.
