Exhibition: Unfinished Business



The issues confronting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living with a disability are featured in Unfinished Business, a multimedia documentary exhibition to be shown in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory.

Following on from its national tour, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in collaboration with award winning artist Belinda Mason, is supporting the Unfinished Business exhibition to mark International Day of People with Disability on Sunday 3 December 2017.

Unfinished Business gives a powerful voice to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living with a disability. Through 3D photography, the exhibition highlights critical issues that impact their lives.

The stories told in Unfinished Business reveal a normalisation of disability. As a collective group, the exhibition has the power to change attitudes towards disability and show there is no shame in talking about disability and that asking for help is okay.

The exhibition provides a unique platform that explores different perspectives and experiences of disability. It prompts meaningful discussion about Indigenous disability and the work being done to improve outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability.

The exhibition was originally launched in Geneva by the Director-General of the United Nations. It was also a part of Australia’s official contribution to the United Nations 2014 World Conference on Indigenous Persons in New York. The exhibition has also travelled to Perth, Sydney and some regional Australian towns.
