Permanent exhibit, inside the One Million Stories exhibition

At our One Million Stories exhibition you can view our Chinese Australian Achievers exhibit, which is a collection of 27 interviews with Chinese Australian Achievers who have contributed to contemporary Australian society in Education, Science, Arts, Business, Cuisine, Sport and Medicine.

The exhibit celebrates the contribution of contemporary Chinese Australians who we have found outstanding for their ingenuity, talent, skill, creativity, hard work, conviction, and efforts to make our society a better place. 

It is a summation of a collective wisdom, that is the greatest tool to any young Chinese Australian who wishes to succeed in Australian life - having to navigate through a contemporary Australian multicultural society - that isn’t always easy!
