'Identity: Yours, Mine, Ours' - Exhibition Research Project Evaluation Report
In 2011, Museum Victoria launched the Identity: Yours, Mine, Ours (IYMO) exhibition at the Immigration Museum in Melbourne. This major long-term exhibition targeted secondary school students as a primary audience, its key themes addressing curriculum units relating to identity, belonging and ethnicity. The exhibition’s core aims were to provide a dynamic participatory environment that encouraged reflection, challenged assumptions and compelled visitors to think about ways they could effect positive change in their everyday lives.
This project aimed to understand the public role of museums in countering racism and promoting positive attitudes and acceptance toward people from diverse racial, ethnic and cultural groups.
