From Little Things Big Things Grow

Theresa Chelepy-Roberts, Senior Curator – Cultures, Customs & Country

The fight for Indigenous civil rights from 1920 to 1970 is the subject of this moving and powerful exhibition that follows the struggles of a group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians who banded together in the fight to end discrimination.

Join our Senior Curator of Cultures, Customs & Country as she explores the photographs, objects, personal stories and protest material featured in the exhibition to tell this largely unknown or forgotten story.

Cultural Advice: Visitors should be aware that the exhibition and website may include names, images and voices of deceased people that may cause sadness or distress to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It is our intention to tell these stories and use imagery with good faith and with respect.
