"Every Story Counts Recording Migration Heritage
A Wollongong Case Study"

join us for the launch

Wollongong Art Gallery

Recording migration heritage, and in particular people’s memories of migration and settlement, provides first-hand perspectives on Australian history.

Meredith Walker’s thematic framework provides a new and innovative approach to recording the migration experience. It gives voice to memories which would not be heard or shared and ones which are rarely documented formally. They are however, part of the kaleidoscope of stories that bring us together as a nation.
