Object stories

ABC Open Created by ABC Open Plus

Contribute to a virtual museum of Australian objects by uploading a audio slideshow video about an object and the story it tells.

If only they could talk, the objects around us would tell fascinating stories about our lives. Object Stories is a joint project of ABC Open, Radio National and the National Museum of Australia which invites you to choose an object that has a great tale to tell and contribute its story to a virtual museum of Australian objects.

Some objects tell a particularly local story, while others hold stories of far away, and the people who carried them to where they are

Contribute to a virtual museum of Australian objects by uploading a audio slideshow video about an object and the story it tells.

If only they could talk, the objects around us would tell fascinating stories about our lives. Object Stories is a joint project of ABC Open, Radio National and the National Museum of Australia which invites you to choose an object that has a great tale to tell and contribute its story to a virtual museum of Australian objects.

Some objects tell a particularly local story, while others hold stories of far away, and the people who carried them to where they are now. Some are about the way people work or live, while some hold stories of the changing attitudes and lifestyles of Australians.

This project invites regional museums, historical societies and individuals to be part of a collection of objects which together tell the story of Australia. Selected stories gathered through the project will be featured by the National Museum of Australia, and through a series of radio programs on ABC Radio National.
