Without stories there is silence. Without stories told, we are voiceless. Without our stories heard, we are invisible. This is very hard, when the stories are hard to hear, difficult to see and impossible to imagine.

Unfinished Business reveals the visual stories of 30 Australian Indigenous persons with disability by photographer Belinda Mason and film makers Knierim Brothers. There are high rates of disability in Australian Indigenous communities, and each participant's story is complex and intertwined within Australian history.

This exhibition was developed in close collaboration with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants and the stories that they tell are their own and that of their people. People with sensory, cognitive and learning impairments are able to engage with the exhibition via OpenAcess Tours app.
