Unsettled – Australian Museum Exhibition @ Australian Museum
May 22 @ 9:00 am – Oct 10 @ 9:00 pm

This land was not peacefully settled – Unsettled uncovers the untold histories behind this nation’s foundation story.

In this powerful exhibition, First Nations voices reveal the hidden stories of devastation, survival and the fight for recognition. These first-hand accounts are presented through long hidden historical documents, large-scale artworks, immersive experiences and never-before-seen objects from the Australian Museum collections and beyond.

First Nations Elders including Uncle Waubin Richard Aken (Kaurareg), Aunty Fay Moseley (Wiradjuri) and Uncle Noel Butler (Budawang), share their lived experiences.

Featuring the work of contemporary artists including Ryan Presley, Tony Albert, Charlotte Allingham (Coffin Birth), Jai Darby Walker and Danie Mellor, this free exhibition interrogates the lasting impacts of colonisation and the denial of Indigenous sovereignty.

With more than 80 significant cultural objects and over 100 contributions by First Nations peoples across the country, Unsettled illuminates the power of truth-telling to realise change. Understanding our shared past is an important step towards healing for a shared future.

Guided tours can be booked here

Jailing is failing @ Online
Aug 5 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Our criminal justice system is not working.

Since 1985, the Australian imprisonment rate has more than tripled.

It is a national crisis for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Jailing is also failing women, the fastest growing cohort of our prisons. It is failing people with mental illness or disability. And it is failing Australian taxpayers, costing over $110,000 per prisoner each year.

The evidence is clear, but scarce action is being taken.

 Join us in conversation with Debbie Kilroy (Sisters Inside), Keenan Mundine (Deadly Connections), Mindy Sotiri (Justice Reform Initiative) and Verity Firth on what needs to happen to bring about immediate change.
