The National Museum of Australia is participating in the Khalili Foundation and UNESCO festival initiative

We are delighted to be collaborating with the National Museum of Australia as part of the World Festival of Cultural Diversity.

Firstly, on Saturday 13 May 2023, there will be a special event in association with the National Museum of Australia’s exhibition Feared and Revered: Feminine Power through the Ages.

Experience a tapestry of sights, sounds and tastes in this celebration of cultures and communities from around the world. Taste delicious food, browse market stalls, enjoy music and dance performances and get inspired with our family friendly activities and workshops at this free event.

We are also very excited to share the exhibition Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters that showcases five First Nations songlines from Australia’s Western and Central Deserts. It uses over 300 paintings and photographs, objects, song, dance and multimedia to narrate the story of the Seven Sisters and their creation of the continent as they travelled from west to east.

The exhibition is currently showing at Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac.

As part of the festival we will share a video of the visit of First Nations community representatives to the exhibition launch in April.
