This exhibition promises to take students of all ages on a voyage of discovery into far-ranging areas of learning. The exhibition offers opportunities to explore through art themes including trade and exploration, maritime history, the role of Asian spices in Europe, the development of mapping on a global scale, the integration of Christianity into Asian contexts, and the impact of the Age of Spices on Australia. Students use historical objects and works of art to develop an understanding of significant explorers, to investigate the positive and negative impacts of exploration from different perspectives, and to identify the motivating factors that led to exploration.

Learning support for this exhibition includes a teachers’ briefing, an online education resource, guided inquiry sessions and facilitated making activities in The Studio that engage students’ to use their imaginations in response to the exhibition.

Education Resource available mid-June
