This travelling exhibition showcases Pacific Islander heritage. With a growing number of Pacific Islanders settling in Australia and an increasing awareness of Australia's Pacific neighbours, it is timely that a major exhibition of tapa (bark cloth) has been developed and offers an opportunity to view traditional and contemporary Pasifika design and to learn more about Australia's Pacific neighbours and migrant communities.

Talking Tapa is a national travelling exhibition presented by Brisbane Multicultural Arts Centre, curated by Joan G Winter and toured by Museum and Gallery Services Queensland. This exhibition is supported by Visions of Australia, an Australian Government Program supporting touring exhibitions by providing funding assistance for the development and touring of Australian cultural material across Australia. This project is also proudly funded by Queensland Government's Gambling Community Benefit Fund and Brisbane City Council.
