LOOKING BACK LOOKING FORWARD: Community banners from the Migration Museum collection

The Migration Museum’s Community Banners project began in 1986, the same year the Museum opened to the public. The project was instrumental in building some of the Museum’s early relationships with South Australia’s culturally diverse communities. As a collection, the banners provide a record of how cultural communities in South Australia chose to represent their own past and their hopes for their future. The banners also give an overview of changing needlecraft techniques over the last 35 years.
