This is an exhibition presenting six perspectives on storytelling from contemporary Australia through photography and voice. Each artist (Indigenous or non-Indigenous) is connected to a community, which celebrates its unique identity and then shares this with us. Each is passionate about communicating cultural and intercultural experiences and viewpoints through photography, sound and education.

What are the responsibilities and issues as a non-Indigenous photographic artist with a burning desire to create social change and work that matters? It is definitely time for non Indigenous Australians to develop the art of consulting and listening to Indigenous Australians in order to truly hear what they have to say.

The intention of this exhibition is to stir up conversations about these matters while also exploring these different collaborative approaches to art and witnessing.

Michael Jalaru Torres (Broome WA), Liz Thompson (Sydney NSW) and Yingiya Guyula (North East Arnhemland), Asher Milgate and Jeff Amatto (Wellington NSW), Pam Kleemann (Melbourne)
