Dr Ella StackValuable collection from former Darwin Lord Mayor Dr Ella Stack

The Dr Ella Stack Collection has been generously donated by the former Lord Mayor and is the complete collection of her personal papers and research materials from nearly three decades of professional and community life in Darwin.

This treasure trove of Darwin history is an amazing donation from Dr Stack and one we are exceedingly grateful to receive as it offers a wonderful window into Darwin's transition from frontier outpost to the modern city we see today.

The Collection which is currently available at the Northern Territory Library contains hundreds of items including magazines, reports, surveys, correspondence, daily diaries, photographs, notes and monographs and other miscellany.


Unfinished-BusinessUnfinished Business – stories from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability

Tuesday 9 June – Sunday 30 August

The Unfinished Business Exhibition reveals the visual stories of 30 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons with disability.  Through their involvement in the project each participant draws much-needed attention to critical issues that impact on their lives. Each participant's story is complex and intertwined with Australia's political and social history, which has resulted in today's high rates of disability in Aboriginal and Torres Strait communities.

Visit the Unfinished Business website for more information.
