It is a place where families can learn and grow together. Today the Museum is one of the most visited museums in Australia and holds collections of national and international significance. It is a leader in remote and regional community engagement, and in Australian Aboriginal heritage and scientific research.

Jason Sweeney and Fiona Sprott have been working together as writer/researchers, performance-makers and media-making artists for many years. They have always maintained a commitment to flexible performance and ‘public’ outcomes for their work, and as such, deliberately sets out to create a mess of ideas, an overload of performative and artistic provocations, textual, sonic and visual excess, which are all anchored in the ways in which we tell our stories to others, and develop intimacy in an era of globalisation.
