Unsettled virtual excursion
The Unsettled virtual excursion is an extension to the temporary exhibition Unsettled, shown at the Australian Museum in 2021. 2020 marked the 250th anniversary of James Cook’s arrival to Australia on the HMB Endeavour and the exhibition was a First Nations response to this anniversary.
During this live session, students will explore the exhibition’s eight main themes including truth-telling, invasions within Australia’s colonial history, frontier wars, massacres and acts of genocide and resistance. Truth-telling about Australia’s past is an important process for understanding who we are now and how we came to be as a nation. We highly recommend engaging your students in the important topics explored during through the virtual excursion.
This virtual excursion will be held online via Zoom. After booking, an email will be sent with your confirmed session details and the Zoom link.
