WCHN History and Heritage Exhibitions and Projects
The WCHN History and Heritage Group works on a number of projects to explore and interpret the Network’s history, and share it with others. The Group researches and curates exhibitions and displays around the Hospital site about the WCHN's history, using objects and archival material from the History and Heritage Collection. Members of the group also write occasional articles about historical artefacts or the stories behind the displays, and sometimes collect relevant oral histories.
The Group currently focuses on producing history displays in two main areas of the North Adelaide campus of the Hospital:
The History Box
This is a small glass display cabinet located just inside the northern entrance of the Samuel Way Building at the ground level.

The Yellow Heart Gallery
Located on Level 1 of Zone F near the Parent Education area, The Yellow Heart Gallery was opened in May 2018 as a new addition to the four existing galleries around the Hospital run by the Women's & Children's Hospital Foundation.
It provides a platform to share the WCHN History and Heritage Collection with the Hospital community and explore the significant people and events that shaped the Hospital today.
The Yellow Heart Gallery's inaugural exhibition (May-July 2018) was Forgotten Murals of the Adelaide Children's Hospital (see below).
