Enter a dramatic installation of giant papyrus scrolls and discover local life stories told in symbols.

What would your life story look like if you told it solely through symbols?

Each scroll hanging in this exhibition will be one individual’s story. Visitors can enjoy decoding the scrolls, helping to normalise untold stories from our communities.

The work will place the life stories within larger questions about who we are today, and inviting visitors to explore their own life stories.
