Stories from Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People with Disability (by Belinda Mason)
4 April - 2 June 2016
Ground Floor Gallery
Without stories there is silence. Without stories told, we are voiceless. Without our stories heard, we are invisible. This is very hard, when the stories are hard to hear, difficult to see and impossible to imagine.
Unfinished Business reveals the visual stories of 30 Australian Indigenous persons with disability by photographer Belinda Mason and film makers Knierim Brothers. Each participant’s story is complex and intertwined with Australia’s history, which has resulted in today’s high rates of disability in Australian Indigenous communities.
This exhibition was developed in close collaboration with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants and the stories that they tell are their own and that of their people. People with sensory, cognitive and learning impairments are able to engage with the exhibition via mobile app.
The State Library of Western Australia is proud to be the only Western Australian venue to host Unfinished Business. The exhibition is made possible through the support of the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, First Peoples Disability Network Australia, The Fred Hallows Foundation, Outback Academy, Red Dust Healers, Primary Communications and Simpsons.
