Upcoming Events

An intimate glimps at Jewish religious and cultural events

Sydney-based Polish photographer D-Mo Zajac has been documenting refugee and migrant communities in Australia and overseas since 2010. Having recently discovered her own Jewish heritage, photographing the Jewish community was a personal journey for Zajac. Her intimate glimpses of religious and cultural events are on display in Celebration: Jewish Community Photographs, launched as part of Multicultural March. 

This display can be found on Level 1 of the Macquarie Street building.
