Introducing committee member Andrew Barty-King

In my role as Media Officer I look forward to continuing bringing shafts of light about Chinese Australian History, on behalf of others, to our membership and followers.

Spending my working life in hospitality I spent 10 years in China between 2008 and 2018. I witnessed many aspects of life on the mainland from the urban highlife to rural simplicity. One of my enduring memories of China is the experience of entering temple grounds and seeing the shafts of light permeating spaces in the wood screens in the buildings, and through rising smoke from the incense.
