British Migrants: Instant Australians? expo at Immigration Museum
Rohini Kappadath with Conaghan and McGuire

Red Symons and Paul Jennings will share their experiences of migration at the launch of the Immigration Museum’s latest exhibition, British Migrants: Instant Australians?. The exhibition is meant to challenge the idea of what migrants look like by exploding the myths about the biggest migrant group ever to come to Australia.

Dr Moya McFadzean, Senior Curator, Museums Victoria, and various British migrants have shared their stories for the exhibition. Also on display is a stunning installation of tea cups and crockery spanning the 1940s to the 1970s, representing the period of British migration explored in the exhibition.

The exhibition is on at Immigration Museum, 400 Flinders St, Melbourne
