While the exhibition launch will be online, you will be able to physically visit us and view the exhibition when we reopen to the public on Monday, 7 December 2020. However, based on the Victorian Chief Health Officer’s guidelines, we will have in place a range of public health safety measures to protect all visitors and staff. This means we can only accomodate 20 visitors at any one time in our building, and all visitors will be required to adhere to the 1.5m social distancing guideline.

We acknowledge the support of our exhibition and award partners:
