From Glory Boxes to Grindr and other assorted tales of the everyday – Oral History Victoria’s Inaugural Group Exhibition

November 23, 2016 - December 21, 2016

The exhibition showcases the recent and varied projects completed by members of Oral History Victoria. Through a collection of projects presented as vignettes – snippets of time and of perspective, you will be asked to listen to the obscure, the everyday and the mainstream.

Voices of others displayed in both traditional and digital formats talk us through personal experiences of wartime effort and diplomacy, family life in rural and urban Australia, the perils of dating through generations, the perspective of cultural and political outsiders, impressions of foreign places, the history of the creation of our diverse communities and more…

Contributions from:
Chinese Museum Melbourne, Geelong Voices Oral History Project, History@Work, Let’s Remember This, Memento Media, Somebody’s Daughter Theatre Company, Anisa Puri & Alistair Thomson, The Foundling Archive, Young Christian Workers Archive, Way Back When.
