Performing Refugee History: Voices from Contemporary Australia

Melbourne writers, artists and historians are working with refugee testimony in cutting edge media and are using personal stories to challenge public policy.

Cellist Stephanie Arnold will perform and discuss Across the Water, a work for cello and electronics based on oral history interviews with Melbourne based asylum seekers.

Michael Green from Behind the Wire (winner of the 2016 Oral History Victoria Innovation Award) will talk about the opportunities and challenges of recording refugee testimony and presenting it in a range of formats (including podcasts, a museum exhibition, a book and a website).

This seminar is part of the Making Public Histories series, now in its tenth year and offered jointly by the Monash University History Program, the History Council of Victoria and the Old Treasury Building. 

The seminar is now fully subscribed (as at 5.30 pm, Sunday 5 March).
