FREE

A Multicultural Arts Victoria project presented with the support of Melbourne Library Service

Multicultural Arts Victoria (MAV) takes pride in its record of discovery, development and promotion of our cultural diversity, heritage and cultural expression. We value this important relationship with the Melbourne Library Service that has enabled us to reflect on the memories and emotions of the courageous people who are our history.

This special FREE public program accompanies the exhibition Memory Keepers Revisit the Past.

Live reading and storytelling by the Memory Keepers
Friday 27 November 2015, 6-8pm
East Melbourne Library

The accompanying exhibition, first exhibited in the Diamond Valley Library, throughout October 2015, showcases visual stories that were produced in collaboration with the Yarra Plenty Regional Library.

“These social history profiles are significant not least because of the ongoing tension between what is considered important and therefore is recorded in the annals of Australian History and what is considered trivial and gets left out; between cultural values of some “old Australians” and the values of new; as well as old established migrants, displaced people and the many refugee seekers whose sole aim is to work in peaceful coexistence, and to make a permanent home in Australia for themselves and for future generations; between Christianity and other faiths and beliefs.

– Lella Cariddi, Exhibition Curator, 2015

1 November – 27 November 2015
East Melbourne Library, 122 George St, East Melbourne VIC 3002
