- "Bridge of Memories" Exhibition
Due to popular demand the tour to Guangzhou of ‘Bridge of Memories: Exploring Identity, Diversity, Community’ an Australian exhibition in China has been extended. The exhibition is on display at the Guangdong Museum of Chinese Nationals Residing Abroad (http://gdhqbwg.com) until the 31 July 2014. Open Tuesday to Saturday 9:30 am - 17:00 pm. (closed Monday and Sunday).
Through personal accounts told by contemporary Chinese Australians, Bridge of Memories explores the little told story of migrants of Chinese descent who have come to Australia in the last 50 years. The loosening and then removal of racially discriminatory immigration restrictions from the 1950s onwards has made this the most active period of Chinese migration to Australia since the 1850s gold rushes. These Chinese Australians have come from China and many regions around South East Asia. Since arrival they have grown to prosper and contribute to all areas of Australian society. This exhibition celebrates their contribution.
