Australian National Maritime Museum - Lightshow extended


'Chinese migration low res'    Australian National Maritime Museum

The Australian National Maritime Museum is pleased to announce that Waves of Migration - its dynamic rooftop projection show which has been delighting Darling Harbour visitors since Australia Day - has been extended until 28 February due to popular demand.

Waves of Migration is a thought-provoking ten-minute animated silent projection that weaves together Australia’s rich tapestry of migration stories.

The light show follows the journeys of migrant boats, across oceans and cultures, through the passage of time. It depicts a fascinating array of personal stories from British convicts and early settlers, to Jewish refugees and displaced persons from war-torn Europe, to Ten Pound Poms, Vietnamese boat people and seaborne asylum seekers from Afghanistan. Together these waves of migration have made Australia the multi-cultural country it is today.

The rooftop show is supported by a dedicated website Australian National Maritime Museum with links to the museum’s collection. The museum is also inviting people to get involved by sharing their own immigration stories on the website.

Waves of Migration joins the museum’s 100-metre-long Welcome Wall and vast collection of more than 10,000 immigration artefacts, personal diaries, letters and photographs, as a lasting tribute to the millions of people who have emigrated from around the world to settle in Australia.

Following the success of this inaugural projection show, in which the Maritime Museum has used its iconic roof as an extension of its galleries, the museum will present regular shows coinciding with key Sydney dates and festivals.
The light show runs nightly after dark and must end on 28 Feburary 2013. Waves of migration is free, is suitable for all ages and is best viewed from Pyrmont Bridge and around the King Street Wharf area at Darling Harbour.
