What stories can a possum skin cloak, a carved wood panel or an embroidered banner tell?

In this program, students will interact with these objects that explore a range of cultural histories and make connections to their own family histories.

Following the staff led session, students are presented with an education resource, which they will use to guide them through museum galleries. The gallery experience will support students to make further connections to their own their identity and migration stories.

All Victorian Government schools and low fee-paying, non-government schools are eligible to access Positive Start programs.

Museums Victoria acknowledges the support of the Department of Education and Training, Victoria, through the Positive Start in 2022 initiative.
