Learning Lab showcase

When the Learning Lab is not running a co-creative workshop, it transforms into a digital exhibition space showcasing a range of content through awe-inspiring wall and floor projections for Melbourne Museum visitors.

The following showcase content will be available from late April 2020:

River Connections

River Connections is an immersive projection experience made in collaboration with Koorie Elders and community members, Aunty Esther Kirby, Uncle Larry Walsh, Uncle Brendan Kennedy and Genevieve Grieves. The experience explores their close connections to the land, animals, plants and rivers of Victoria.

The five minute experience takes audiences on a journey through the unique environment of the Murray River. It explores how all life is connected and dependent on a healthy environment to thrive, however overuse of the waterways and pollution from human activities put this at risk.

Each scene, image and sound, as well as the overall structure, was developed through a consultative and collaborative process of ‘deep listening’ sessions and visiting the Elders on Country.

This inspiring infinity projection of a beautiful river environment reminds viewers that we are all part of a dynamic web of life.

Created by Grumpy Sailor and Museums Victoria in collaboration with Esther Kirby, Larry Walsh, Brendan Kennedy and Genevieve Grieves. Voiceover by Esther Kirby.

Mindfulness in the rainforest

Reboot your brain and immerse yourself in the magic of the Otways. Our cameras take you into a world were mountain ash trees reign and waterfalls plunge into valleys thick with ferns and alive with bird song. Take a guided journey—and see if you can hear the beating heart of this ancient rainforest.

Digital stories

Our museums are full of stories. In this showcase we will be featuring highlights from our ever growing collection of digital stories. These engaging videos will take you to the centre of our national forests, into the kitchens of the past and even down our sewer systems. You are sure to find stories that will inspire, entertain and maybe even change the way you look at the world.

These experiences rotate when workshops are not in session and are available at no additional cost to museum visitors. See experience times onsite on the day of your visit.
