Life in the small Pacific nation of Tuvalu is already changing because of climate change.

Culture in Tuvalu is based in and transmitted through oral tradition, so there is very little documented history of this Pacific nation. Because memories of place and culture are firmly embedded in the hearts and minds of Tuvaluans, we have drawn on material from Museum Victoria, supporters of the Tuvalu community and its members for this exhibition.
It was created for Tuvaluans and the broader community in Australia at a time when countries around the world had only begun to take responsibility for their part in the environmental changes impacting on the lives and futures of Tuvaluans.
