FIRST GENERATION PORTRAIT EXHIBITION

IN 2009 VIVA LA GONG

First Accommodation research from the MHP's Wollongong Migration Heritage Thematic Study (Places Project) was the subject of a photographic exhibition that formed part of the 2009 Viva La Gong Festival. The photographs are exhibited on the Wollongong City Gallery exterior panels (Corner of Kembla and Burelli Streets Wollongong).

Viva La Gong Festival commissioned photographer Mayu Kanamori to create the portraits reflecting the migrant experience in Wollongong, featuring contemporary portraits and a selection of archival images.

These photographs, taken by renowned artist Mayu Kanamori, record present day images of people who migrated to the City and who have helped shape and characterise its community.
