This talk will discuss how the Museum has broadened its activities over the last five years to create a socially connected community that places all Chinese Australians and their descendants in the context of their diverse diasporic journeys over the past two centuries to the present day. Our inclusive focus strengthens our identity as individuals and as a community in a contemporary Australian multicultural society.

The talk will include:

  • Background of the Museum of Chinese Australian History
  • History of Chinese in Australia
  • Standing on 3 pillars of understanding – Culture, History and Heritage
  • The Museum’s operations, its collection, current research and public programs
  • The Museum’s future plan for growth

The event is jointly hosted by HOMELandS (Hub On Migration, Exile, Languages and Spaces) at the University of Westminster and the Chinese Heritage Centre of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. It is organised as part of the ‘Global Diasporic Chinese Museums Network Initiative’ project funded by AHRC.
