 British Migrants: Instant Australians?

Image1

Description

Between 1947 and 1981, nearly 1.5 million Brits arrived in an Australia that was predominantly white and British – it had worked hard to be so. Newcomers from Britain had all the advantages of a shared language, culture and history. So fitting in should be easy. But reality is never that simple.

What did the British actually experience? What did this mass migration mean for Australia at the time? What does all this mean for us today?

British Migrants: Instant Australians? incorporates a rich and diverse range of voices to explore narratives at both a national and personal level, focusing on questions of identity and impact on contemporary Australia.

The exhibition includes objects, historical film, images and innovative multimedia experiences to explore the personal stories of British migrants and the contemporary perspectives of migrants and commentators – including some well-known faces.
