Sikhs have been documented living and working in Australia dating back to the 1830s. Today there are over 210,000 Sikhs in Australia, representing 0.8% of the Australian population.

Founded in 2015, charity organisation Turbans 4 Australia have supported hundreds of thousands of Australians through tough times including natural disasters, homelessness, domestic violence, poverty, unemployment and the isolating Covid - 19 pandemic.

Their story is a continuous journey from the past, embedded with traditions and values from centuries of rich history, into contemporary Australian life and identity today.

This enduring story of selfless service, promoting multiculturalism and religious tolerance, is a celebration of Sikh heritage, arts, culture and values.

Objects shape who we are, the people we engage with, our attachment to place, our values and ideas.

Resonances takes you on a journey to discover Liverpool’s heritage through its collection of donated objects, unifying a diversity as an eclectic assembly of artefacts and oral histories.

We can only speculate about the personal meanings and significance an object holds for an individual or family; donors provide a trace of their story as a gift for future generations.

Resonances combines the collection within six themes:

  • Home
  • Good times
  • Hard times
  • Community
  • Children
  • Work

Each theme explores Liverpool’s past, through people and places that shaped Liverpool’s history, culture, social and economic life.
