‘FROM LITTLE THINGS BIG THINGS GROW: Fighting for Indigenous Rights 1920 – 1970’ Exhibition in Sydney

‘FROM LITTLE THINGS BIG THINGS GROW: Fighting for Indigenous Rights 1920 – 1970’
VENUE: Museum of Sydney, Cnr Bridge & Phillip Streets, Sydney (nr Circular Quay): Open daily 9.30am – 5pm.
EXHIBITION: 19 FEBRUARY to 8 MAY 2011 (Launched 24 Feb. by Prof. Larissa Behrendt)

This exhibition tells the story of a group of Australians, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, who said ‘That’s not good enough’ – and did something about it.
The exhibition tells some uncomfortable truths and celebrates some ‘ordinary extraordinary’ heroes.
This is the time where some Australians did not have the same freedoms as everybody else.
They were the First Australians, made second-class citizens in their own country. This is unknown history to many non-Aboriginal people and even possibly to young Aboriginal Australians. But it’s painfully familiar to most Aboriginal people.

This is a moment to share our common history and celebrate some courageous Australians.
A travelling exhibition developed and presented by the National Museum of Australia http://www.nma.gov.au
This exhibition is supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.

Launched in Canberra … Sydney (as above) … WA: (venue TBA) July-Sept 2011 … Brisbane: Oct 2011-Feb 2012 … Townsville: March-May 2012.
**************************************************************************” When we have Compassion, our heart is open, and we become stronger than the things we usually judge and avoid that cause us pain, anger, and outrage. We become attuned not to just the nurturing and life giving forces of Creator, but also the imbalanced oppressive and life threatening ones. As we can open ourselves to others and begin to understand more, which is better than condemning them, we learn how to apply Love and forgiveness to relieve the suffering.
Compassion is not done for others, it is done with others, for yourself, because you can no longer deny the need. Life is Joy and it is the role of us all to reduce suffering on this planet and live fully what we really are, Co-creators.”
Venerable Pa’Ris’Ha
