Bunjilaka at the Melbourne Museum is a living Aboriginal cultural centre that celebrates the strength and vitality of Koorie people in Victoria. A major exhibition redevelopment will strengthen and revitalise Bunjilaka as a place to celebrate and engage with the cultures and histories of Victoria’s first people.

Members of the exhibition team discuss their experiences of creating First Peoples, the new major exhibition at Bunjilaka, opening in mid-July.

The exhibition has been created with extensive community consultation and co-curation by members of Victoria’s Aboriginal community. The First Peoples Yulendj Group has brought stories, culture and knowledge to every aspect of the exhibition development.

More information on the exhibition can be found here.

Speakers will include:

  • Genevieve Grieves, lead curator
  • Caroline Martin, manager, Bunjilaka
  • Amanda Reynolds, senior curator
  • Members of the First Peoples Yulendj Group

The Making Public Histories Seminar Series is an initiative of the Monash Institute of Public History, in association with the History Council of Victoria and the State Library of Victoria.
