Multicultural Arts Victoria (MAV) proudly announces the opening of its first Memory Keepers exhibition of visual biographies for 2017: Waves of Love and Emotion and the launch of recalling the journey – an illustrated E-publication of unforgettable stories by and about migrants and refugees who came to Australia by ship up to the late 1970s.

The exhibition runs until Saturday 1 April.

Waves of Love and Emotion is an exhibition of visual biographies, artefacts and artworks which reflect themes of memory, love, loss and resignation.

Each one is an echo of moments in the history of immigration to Australia by Memory Keepers who have been telling their stories through the What Happened at the Pier program.

The stories in the Recalling the Journey, E-publication reveal personal anecdotes that leave you pondering.

Both the exhibition and the digital publication provide an opportunity for readers and viewers to engage with and explore significant historical events and circumstances which motivated millions of people to leave behind everything they had ever known and embark on the long and dangerous journey to Australia, which for many was an unknown continent.
