Join Travis De Vries for a storytelling session based on Indigenous objects held in the museum

This year’s NAIDOC Week theme is ‘Our Languages Matter’ and what better way to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait languages than to listen to a woven tapestry of folklore by Gamilaroi man Travis De Vries. In this special Saturday afternoon event, visitors can take a seat in the Australian Museum and hear stories and music from the undocumented side of our shared history – from spirits and creatures to the hidden stories of objects from the museum’s Indigenous cultural collections. Lost Tales Live includes music from a cellist and specially commissioned animations that draw from the sacred myths and legends of Australia and its first peoples. There’ll be a chance for a Q&A, plus an opportunity view the collection.
