About this Event

Bendigo Chinese community organisations represented in the collection of the Golden Dragon Museum.

Presented by Leigh McKinnon, Golden Dragon Museum.

The Golden Dragon Museum’s extensive collection includes items from some of the many religious, fraternal, and secular organisations which have existed amongst the Chinese communities of the Victorian goldfields since the 1850s. From secret societies whose members were pledged to uphold a creed of loyalty and brotherhood through to the early committees that organised the public spectacle of the Bendigo Easter Fair’s Chinese section, the Golden Dragon Museum houses banners, certificates, photos, and documents which help illuminate the historical contexts and personal stories behind a variety of local Chinese community organisations in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This talk will cover several of these artefacts from our collection, focusing on what they can reveal about these organisations and the central Victorian Chinese communities which created and sustained them.
