'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.

Youth Participation: closer to the edge of participation and activism

What is the state of youth participation in 2018? What do trends, such as rising populism and nationalism and the influence of technology mean for the future of youth participation in Europe? How to understand and define participation?

You can read about it from the fresh publication by SALTO Think Tank on Youth Participation which was written by Alex Farrow and co-created with thinkers from across the European continent. This paper aims to harness collective expertise, experience and perspectives: the first section considers the state of youth participation and explores the models that assist in defining, analysing and evaluating participation. It particularly notes the lack of reliable and comprehensive data and provides an overview of the European policy landscape. Building on this foundation, the second section considers the new and emerging trends in participation and youth activism – such as threats from the far-right, shifting expectations and power and the use of technology as a tool for change.

Writing Peace: how can writing systems support a better understanding of the world around us?

“Writing Peace” is a manual that invites young audiences to discover contemporary writings through the introduction of various languages. Its goal is to make the world appear a little closer and a little more familiar. "Writing Peace" encourages children (ages8 to 14) to become aware of the interdependence of cultures through familiarization with contemporary writing systems, their history, and their borrowings.

The manual contains 24 activity sheets. Each section presents the characters of a writing system, an introductory text and historical background, the word “peace” and the word “hello,” the language(s) attached to the system(s), and an activity whose answers appear at the end of manual.

Six thousand years after the advent of writing, what do we know about others, their systems of thought, and the transcriptions of their writing systems? How can different writing systems contribute to a better understanding of the world and our place within it? By beginning to learn about these writings and their fascinating beauty, the manual connects children to diversity, thus opening their eyes to the concept of peace and our awareness of it.
