While Yiwarra Kuju has been touring the nation, the Canning Stock Route Project team has been busy converting the exhibition’s One Road multimedia interactive into an Application for iOS and web with the support of Lotterywest and the Australian Government’s T-QUAL Grants.
The One Road: Canning Stock Route Project app retains the rich interactive experience of the One Road exhibition display but transports users to the stock route through their own personal devices, bringing the cultural, artistic, and social components of the desert alive.
Using Alfred Canning’s hand-drawn 1910 map as its interface, users are able to fly over the landscape and descend at multiple nodes along the route in a discovery of the remarkable story of the world’s longest and reputedly most dangerous stock route, told for the first time from the perspective of Aboriginal people through the Canning Stock Route Project.
Yiwarra Kuju: the Canning Stock Route is now showing at the Queensland Museum in Brisbane.
The exhibition will run until the 14th of July and you can pre-purchase tickets in advance here.
This is the last chance to see this blockbuster award-winning exhibition before it closes permanently and goes into storage at the National Museum of Australia. Don’t miss out!
See the Queensland Museum’s website for more details.
