From Wadjemup (Rottnest) to Galup (Lake Monger), the lakes of the Western suburbs and beyond, Perth is full of expansive landscapes, iconic landmarks and well known places, each bursting with untold stories from our rich Aboriginal and migrant past.
Yep, turns out there’s much more to learn about our city’s history than the stale old tales we’re told in school. And while not all of these stories are easy to hear, they teach us vital lessons from our past and help build greater respect and understanding within our community.
The Museum of Freedom and Tolerance is helping unearth these unique, untold stories of Perth through their four-day festival In Visible Ink.
Running from Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 March at the WA Museum Boola Bardip, the program is dedicated to making the invisible visible and shedding light on the narratives of marginalised communities erased from the history books through high-impact performances, readings, tours, panels, films and song—all bound to make you see things differently.
And in the spirit of inclusivity, they’re offering 50% off all tickets to make the fest even more accessible, so we suggest you scope out the full program and get booking.
What: In Visible Ink presented by The Museum Of Freedom and Tolerance
