About the exhibition

This online exhibition has been developed as part of the Australia-Indonesia Museums (AIM) Project.

Jointly funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) through Australia-Indonesia Institute (AII) and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology of the Republic of Indonesia, the AIM Project has been led by Deakin University's Cultural Heritage Asia-Pacific Group in collaboration with the Museum Nasional Indonesia, the Western Australian Museum (WAM), the Southeast Asia Museum Services (SEAMS), and fourteen partner museums from across Indonesia.

The AIM Project was established with three main objectives. Firstly, to support long-term partnerships between Indonesian and Australian museum professionals and their institutions. Secondly, to generate new stories about connections between people and places in Australia and Indonesia. And thirdly, to develop new approaches to object interpretation through workshops, discussions and co-curation of this online exhibition.

Over eighty people from Indonesia and Australia have contributed to developing this exhibition, including curators, historians, academics, photographers, designers and more. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to making this exhibition possible.
