Sydney Elders


With Ronald Briggs and Jonathan Jones 

In 2018 the Library will open Sydney Elders, a new exhibition curated by Jonathan Jones. Sydney Elders reflects the diversity of the local Sydney Aboriginal community by placing elders’ stories at the centre of knowledge. Through active consultation, elders have responded to items in the Library’s collection. Ronald and Jonathon will discuss different collection items and the complexities around how Aboriginal knowledge and stories are held, told and supported through institutions like the Library.
