Author(s): Dawn Crowther

Our Local Authors

Weaving together compelling first-hand accounts as well as her own memories of growing up in the wild and beautiful Northern Illawarra, Dawn Crowther chronicles the story of a much-loved local institution. Built by striking mine workers in 1911, the Clifton School of Arts has survived 110 volatile years - landslides and storms, two World Wars, economic downturns and global pandemics. With her stories of toil, tragedy, laughter and comradeship, Crowther reveals how, against all odds, successive generations of families in this close-knit mining town battled threats from the weather, from rising damp, from bureaucrats and developers alike to keep the School of Arts standing, to keep its doors open and its lights on. To keep it in community hands. Chronicles of Clifton goes a long way to explaining why successive waves of new arrivals to the Illawarra have fallen in love with this unpretentious institution and have joined the fight to keep its spirit intact.
