A conserver : votre agenda du mois de mai à Melbourne
Le doute n’est plus possible. Thermomètre descendant régulièrement en dessous des 10 degrés, pluie, vent… A Melbourne, l’hiver approche. Alors certes, rien ne semble ainsi plus attirant qu’une bonne série réfugié sous la couette. Mais est-ce une raison suffisante pour ne plus profiter de la ville la plus agréable du monde ? De la K-pop, un festival de chocolat, des mamies et même une semaine de la bonne bière… En mai, Melbourne a tout prévu pour vous extirper de chez vous et vous en mettre plein les yeux, les oreilles et les papilles. Alors à vos agendas !
Tout le mois : Vikings: Beyond the Legend at Melbourne Museum
You’ve seen the TV series and you’ve heard the stories of savagery associated with the Vikings, now see them for what they really were. Recent archaeological discoveries have challenged our image of Vikings as pillaging and plundering pagans in horned helmets. Vikings: Beyond the Legend brings this rich, often-misunderstood culture to life, debunking stereotypes and providing insights into Viking domestic life, rituals and beliefs. At Melbourne Museum, over 450 artefacts come together to form the largest collection of its kind displayed in Australia. Among the rare treasures on show are the stunning skeletal remains of a Viking longship, one of the finest Thor’s-hammer pendants ever found, and Viking swords dating from 700 AD to 1100 AD. From the Swedish History Museum, Vikings: Beyond the Legend shows us why even 1000 years later, Viking culture still captivates imaginations. Find out more here.

Featuring stories of grandmothers from across Melbourne, Multicultural Museums Victoria presents its inaugural joint project — ‘Grandmothers’. Through five extraordinary exhibitions and accompanying events, come and celebrate the accomplishments, wisdom and the central role of the grandmother in Chinese, Italian, Greek, Muslim and Jewish communities. The ‘Grandmothers’ project pays tribute to this diverse group of women who, as custodians of culture and tradition, pass on their knowledge, culture and history from generation to generation. Through striking portraits and artworks, recipes and flavours, tales of war, survival and migration, language, religious texts and traditional objects, each exhibition positions the grandmother at the forefront of family and community history. They provide new inspiring ways of telling the stories of grandmothers, whose voices have been silenced or absent from historical narratives. More info here.
