Your story

If you are an Australian who experienced out-of-home care as a child, we would like to hear from you. You are welcome to leave a comment on any of the pages or posts here. Or perhaps you’d like to write a post, as a guest author.

Historical objects and photos

Things that have come to us from past times help us tell stories from that time.

We have collected historical objects and photos we might use in the exhibition. Do you have a photo that you could email to the Museum to help us tell your story?

Creative responses

People tell stories of their experiences in many ways. One way is through art. We want to collect as many as we can online.
