Museum of the Nowhere People

Caught up in the proceedings of everyday life, it is easy to be unknowing of others around the world who may not have the same rights and freedoms. The "Museum of the Nowhere People" is a space which gives voice to those who have fallen through the cracks of our society by sharing stories of identity and celebrating togetherness. Guided by the United Nation's  Declaration of Human Rights regarding the right to life, liberty and security (Article 3) and the right to Asylum in other Countries from persecution (Article 14) the space exhibits six individual biographies of people who have struggled to find belonging. The intention of the space is not to push a political agenda but rather put a face to those who lack the platform to express themselves and ultimately share their stories with the rest of Australia.
