Unexpected Forces

Lotus Place


Unexpected Forces (2022) is a beautiful collection of illustrated stories and poems written by Forgotten Australians. It was published by Lotus Place & Micah Projects Queensland.
Forgotten Australians is a term used by many to remember the estimated 500k Australians who were in ‘out of home’ care during the 20th century.
Forgotten Australians came together in a series of creative writing workshops in 8 locations across Queensland to share their stories.
Writes Katie McGuire, Project Coodinator for Lotus Place & Micah Projects:
“This anthology will contribute to the legacy of Forgotten Australians, and those who are survivors of institutional child abuse. It serves as a testimony to their strength and resilience, imaginations, and compassionate hearts.”
