The independent type

The independent type exhibition celebrated Victoria's rich and diverse written culture, highlighting the stories, the voices and the spirit of independence that made our literature unique.

The exhibition traced Victoria's literary evolution from traditional indigenous storytelling through colonial classics to the vibrant contemporary writing scene. This thread is interwoven with the grand narrative of Victoria's history, and of the people and events that made Melbourne marvellous.

This exhibition was held from 24 April to 25 October 2009.
