Contemporary Migrant Experience Project: two years on
You are invited to attend a floor talk by Grace Williams, leader of TMAG’s Contemporary Migrant Experience Project. She works with migrant communities to develop local history collections and preserve cultural heritage by producing content for online platforms, exhibitions and programs.
Grace’s talk will provide an overview of the major highlights from the Contemporary Migrant Experience almost two years since the project commenced. It will include information about recent acquisitions, upcoming exhibitions, and future plans for community engagement with TMAG’s migrant heritage collection.
Grace spoke in November 2021 to a very engaged audience of Friends and their friends. She promised to speak to us again when the project had advanced further, so now is your chance to pick up the story. Grace says, ‘I’m really looking forward to talking for ages, I have so so so much to share’.
Grace Williams is a creative social entrepreneur, researcher and human rights scholar. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Law and Arts from the University of Tasmania and was one of ten emerging Australian creatives selected to join the Australian Film Television and Radio School inaugural national documentary talent camp. She was awarded two Tasmania human rights awards for her work in film and community development. Grace was recently published by Australian Quarterly, Oxford University Press, and Black Inc.
This is a FREE EVENT and you are welcome to bring non-member friends.
