The show is comprised of images - which have never been seen by the public or published - captured by photojournalist Steve Tickner in the hours after the collapse of the Newcastle Workers Club, following the 1989 earthquake.
The collection has been curated by Newcastle Herald head photographer Simone De Peak and show the rescue effort and the devastation the earthquake left behind.
On the 30th anniversary of the tragedy, Newcastle ArtSpace has joined forces with the City of Newcastle, Newcastle Herald, Hunt Hospitality, Piggotts Pharmacy, Newcastle Writers Festival and Jayes Travel to present this compelling collection.
