Memory Keepers Recall The Past, is an intergenerational multicultural family history exhibition featuring very personal stories of migration by and about Nillumbik residents who came to Australia by Ship.

This site specific exhibition comprises stories, artefacts, objects, photographs and artworks which reflect the migration experience of people who disembarked at Port Melbourne through the historical Station Pier and Princes Pier, up to 1976.

As part of the broader project '2015-16, What happened at the pier #2', the project honours the memories of immigrants and refugees who traveled to Australia by ship through the historical entry points of Port Melbourne’s piers. First presented as part of MAV’s 2015 Piers Festival at Princes Pier with satellite exhibitions and events at the Emerald Hill Library & Heritage Centre, St Kilda Library and East Melbourne Library.

The project is envisaged to continue in 2015-16 as a rich narrative experience showcasing stories across multiple artistic formats together with forums and performances.
