When

Mondays to Wednesdays and Fridays, 10am to 5pm Thursdays, 10am to 9pm Weekends, 12pm to 4pm Wednesday 1 June to Sunday 24 July

Stunning historical photographs of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia are brought to life through the contemporary voices, songs and poetry of Pacific peoples.

The images selected for this exhibition date back to the 1870s and reveal views of fragile, flourishing and diverse ecosystems nurtured by Pacific Islander peoples during a time of colonisation.

Full of promise and purpose these views are joined with Pacific Islander voices of our own time. Through audio recordings, oration and poetry, the resonating voices and songs of Pacific peoples connect contemporary culture to the histories captured in these photographs.
