Sharing the Stories of the Stolen Generations – by Link-Up Victoria
Next date: Sunday, 13 June 2021 | 09:00 AM
to Sunday, 22 August 2021 | 05:00 PM
This exhibition, curated by the people at Link-Up Victoria, will bring together the work and voices of Aboriginal artists around the complex and often painful legacy of Stolen Generations in Australia. It will contribute to the conversation and development of a Stolen Generations Marker, being facilitated by Hume City Council in partnership with community.
Link-Up provide a support service to the Stolen Generations to find their family and for family to find members who are Stolen Generations. The Stolen Generations are any Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander who was separated from their family, community, traditional culture and traditional country. “Separated” can mean being removed under past Government Acts (i.e. Native Welfare Act, Aboriginal Welfare Act, etc.) as well as being adopted, fostered, placed in an institution under other government legislation.
Link-Up Victoria assists the Stolen Generations to confidently reclaim their Aboriginal identity, to wholeheartedly embrace their Aboriginal heritage, to happily return back into the caring arms of their people and to proudly walk on their traditional country.
This exhibition will be opened with a special National Sorry Day event on Wednesday 26 May 2021.
