Tell your community’s experiences and stories of migration and diversity

Community exhibitions on show in the Community Gallery are created by communities with support from the Museum. We provide financial, marketing and promotional support to assist communities to create quality exhibitions. Participants demonstrate community support and endorsement for exhibitions so that they are inclusive and representative of the community.

Where possible community exhibitions are scheduled to coincide with important milestones or celebrations in the participating community’s calendar.

The Community Exhibition program:

  • provides a forum for community groups, organisations and special interest groups to tell stories and investigate themes relating to immigration, cultural diversity and identity.
  • encourages community collaboration, participation and ownership.
  • documents and promote the diverse community stories and experiences that are an important part of Australian history.
  • contributes to the history collections of Museum Victoria and the State of Victoria.
