Touring Exhibition: 24th January 2022 - 27th February 2022, The Exhibition Hall at Kuiguangta Park, Dujiangyan City, Sichuan Province, China. 

Following the successful showing of our One Million Stories Touring Exhibition in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China the exhibition is now showing from the 17th January to the 20 February 2022 at the Dujiangyan Exhibition Hall in Chengdu, Sichuan to recognize the 5th anniversary of the sister state relationship.

We are very pleased to be part of this ongoing partnerships with the Chinese state and municipal government and local NGOs through the Victorian Government and Melbourne City Council. The exhibition strengthens Victoria and Sichuan’s sister state relationship, by showing how Chinese people helped shape Victorian society and build prosperity for the State over the last 200 years.

The exhibition is organised by State Government of Victoria, City of Sichuan Overseas Friendship Association and the Chinese Museum with co-organisers: City of Melbourne, Dujiangyan Municipal Foreign Affairs Office, Dujiangyan Municipal Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau and ACASE (Australia China Association of Scientists and Entrepreneurs).

We thank our sponsors for their strong support and great teamwork in making the staging of this touring exhibition another success in China.

One Million Stories exhibition showcases the many, varied and fascinating journeys of individuals, families and community groups that have settled, integrated and helped form Australian society as we see it today. 

The exhibition aims to provide an understanding of the wide-ranging origins of Chinese Australians and the challenge of maintaining one's self-identity in Australia, whilst embracing a common heritage that lays the foundation for a cohesive society. The exhibition in Dujiangyan also celebrates the 5th anniversary of the sister-state relationship between the State of Victoria and Sichuan Province. 

The state of Victoria and China’s Sichuan Province entered into a modern and ambitious Sister-State Agreement in 2016. The sister-city relationship paved the way for new connections through business, cultural and arts exchanges, health and education between the two states. In the past five years, the relationship is already delivering benefits for both sides, including through sports partnerships and Liveability Victoria International’s collaboration to develop smart and liveable cities. 

The sister city relationship between the City of Melbourne and Chengdu builds on the friendly sister-state relationship between Victoria and Sichuan Province. We thank the project teams on both sides who have worked tirelessly to bring this project to fruition, especially during these extremely challenging times. At the same time, cultural exchange and friendship are at the heart of sister-province relationships, and this exhibition strengthens the ties between the City of Melbourne and Chengdu, and between Victoria and Sichuan Province.
