This project is part of the Immigration Museum’s Community Exhibition Program. Talanoa was developed by representatives from the Fiji community in collaboration with the Immigration Museum, Melbourne, Australia. The organising committee for the Fiji Community exhibition gratefully acknowledges the organisations that have provided invaluable support to this exhibition, and all individuals and families who have contributed to it. We hope that this is another step in strengthening the ties within our community.
