New Land New Hope

In the 1990s, the first wave of refugees from the Horn of Africa region arrived in South Australia. They had fled for their lives from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia and South Sudan. They chose life over death, opportunity over poverty and freedom over oppression. They took the ultimate risk and survived. This exhibition, curated by the Australian Refugee Association, shares the remarkable personal stories of some of those early refugees. It celebrates their contributions to the rich fabric of life in South Australia and shows how a helping hand can completely transform someone’s life. Bookings required by phone or email.

Presented by Multicultural Communities Council of South Australia, Australian Refugee Association (ARA), Migration Museum
