A Thousand Words presents compelling photographic images from the rich collections of Sydney Living Museums and the State Archives and Records Authority of NSW, created between the 1880s and the 1980s.

A Thousand Words adopts a philosophy that everyone can interpret history through the lens of their background, experiences, values and aspirations. Unlike a standard exhibition, the images are presented without traditional curatorial interpretation.

Instead, the public has been invited to contribute responses – whether emotive, nostalgic or imaginative – and this ‘crowdsourced’ material translated into the exhibition design. New creative works have also been commissioned from established and emerging writers and artists, each responding to an image from the exhibition.

A Thousand Words is a collaboration between Sydney Living Museums and NSW State Archives.
