Do you have photographs or videos of your favourite moments at the Melbourne Zoo to contribute to an online exhibition?
To celebrate Melbourne Zoo’s 150th anniversary this year, Public Record Office Victoria, Culture Victoria and the Melbourne Zoo are working together to create an online story which captures the changing face of the zoo over the years.
This online story, which will be published on the Culture Victoria website, will contain images and videos from the archives of Public Record Office Victoria, Melbourne Zoo, State Library Victoria and ACMI, as well as contributions from the Victorian public.
And this is where we need your help!
We are looking for contributions of your personal zoo photos or videos along with a brief accompanying story of your experience at that moment in time. Perhaps you have a video of yourself on the Melbourne Zoo carousel as a child; a photo of your grandmother riding Peggy the elephant at the zoo; or footage of your grandchild’s first visit to the zoo? We would love to hear from you and have your Melbourne Zoo memories added to the Culture Victoria online story.
If your memories are chosen to be part of the online story, you will receive a Public Record Office Victoria goody bag for your efforts. You can share your images and stories via our Facebook page or by email September 15, 2012.
