An Out of the Box Festival and Inala Wangarra production

Have you ever wondered what a museum curated by children would look like? A museum that is placed firmly in the very capable hands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children?

Come and experience Jarjums Life Museum for an intimate view into contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture through the eyes of children. Explore the lives, experiences, ideas and dreams of two distinct communities, the coastal mob of Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island) and the urban mob of Hymba Yumba Community Place.

Jarjums Life Museum will take you up close and personal and invite you into the rich, diverse and intriguing world of these children and their communities.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through The Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Queensland government through Arts Queensland.
