Protest marches? Women’s Liberation? Migrants? Music? Theatre?
The Royal Historical Society of Victoria is preparing an exhibition exploring 1970s Melbourne. The exhibition aims to cover key events such as the protest movements, immigration and immigrants, the flourishing cultural scene and the changing face of the city, amongst others.
The exhibition team is on a hunt for photographs and iconic objects (household items, fashion accessories, badges, posters, even the odd bit of furniture for instance) reflecting life and events in 1970s Melbourne that could be lent to the RHSV for display.
This is therefore a request collectors to dig out their photograph albums or any other memorabilia
from that period that might capture the events, feel and energy of the 1970s which they might be
willing to share for this project. The final selection would depend on the range of items available and
their coverage of the decade or events.
If members have anything which they feel might be of interest to the team, please get in touch with curator, Zoë Henderson, by the 31st of March.
Images can be sent by mail / delivered to the RHSV, 239 A’Beckett Street, Melbourne, VIC 3000, or e‐mailed to Zoë Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have larger items it is probably best to send us a digital photo first!
If you have any queries, please get in touch with Zoë Henderson or the RHSV EO, Rosemary Cameron
