Listen and Learn, Together

Museums Victoria is committed to placing First Peoples’ living cultures, histories and knowledge at the heart of all we do.

Calls for racial justice are being heard right around the world, and the distress at the devastating impacts of racism on communities and individuals of colour, both overseas and here in Australia, cannot be ignored – we hear it.

As a museum organisation, we have a powerful role in connecting people with the past to help them make sense of the present and create a better future. We’ve included resources that will shine some light on why people are marching, and on the ongoing struggle for Aboriginal rights in Australia.
