Microscopy meets Aboriginal art

The AMMRF, under its new identity as Microscopy Australia, recently launched its Stories and Structures – New Connections exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. Opened by Prof. Tom Calma, Co-chair of Reconciliation Australia, this unique and innovative new exhibition brings together microscopy and Indigenous art. Through visual and story-telling parallels, it aims to engage the public, especially Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth, with science, and to bring a new perspective on Indigenous culture to non-Indigenous Australians. After being on show in Sydney at 107, the Powerhouse Museum cafe, IMC19 and the Healing Our Spirit Worldwide Gathering, the exhibition will tour regional and urban Australia over the coming years to maximise opportunities for engagement, aligning with major events along the way. The exhibition is available online at: micro.org.au/storiesandstructures with more on Facebook at: @AMMRFengagement.
