Oral History Victoria Inaugural group showcase.
Showcasing the recent and varied projects completed by members of Oral History Victoria, this exhibition commemorates the ordinary and celebrates the ability for everyone to create histories through the power of conversation.
Through this 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....
