The exhibition will open to the public on the 16 February 2019 in the Philip Bacon Heritage Gallery on Level 4, at the State Library. It will explore the living history of Australian South Sea Islanders, by exploring the State Library of Queensland collections including images, books and documentation collected over the last 150 years. The collections, especially the original material, will be the back drop to a conversation about the significant contribution South Sea Islanders and their descendants, Australian South Sea Islanders have made to Queensland’s cultural landscape.
