An exhibition exploring the experiences of post-World War II migrants to Australia. Featuring highlights from the National Archives of Australia collection of photographs.

    Details

      Description

      The A Place to Call Home? photographic exhibition features highlights from the National Archives of Australia collection of photographs taken by government photographers documenting the experiences of post-World War II migrants to Australia.The photographs were taken between the late 1940s and the 1990s. Known as the Immigration Photographic Archive, the photographs form part of the National Archives of Australia collection. Images from the archive were used to encourage re-location to Australia to prospective migrants and to help local Australians welcome new migrants into the community.

      The photographs strongly represent a time in Australian history that shaped the face of modern multiculturalism. Individuals, families and community groups will identify strongly with the images and will be able to reflect on both their own individual and shared experiences.

      A national touring developed and presented by the National Archives of Australia. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.

      FREE. No bookings required.
