Explore the culture of Australia's Kurdish community.

This exhibition explores how Kurdish culture has survived through adversity, invasion, and division of the Kurds’ traditional lands. Survival of a Culture: Kurds in Australia examines the traditions at the core of Kurdish culture that have enabled it to survive, and which Kurds proudly maintain in Australia today. Objects including traditional costumes, musical instruments, hand-made carpets, hand-woven crafts and household wares that reflect how Kurdish culture continues to survive are presented with a variety of community photographs.
