This event is now in the past.
Twelve diverse individuals share their stories through objects, photographs, artwork and memories.
By telling the stories of the traditional custodians of this land and of culturally diverse Queenslanders, Tradition Now explores how many Queenslanders ‘arrive’ to this land, connect to or disconnect from family and tradition, and the subsequent impacts on contemporary family life.
Look more closely into themes of dislocation, re-discovery, tradition, journeying, and spirituality. Enjoy the description of times past, intricate storytelling and the development of a new family heritage and tradition.
View the Tradition Now showcase. And if you are inspired you can also create and share your own family story.
