Dark Histories and Darker Histories

https://cms.visitballarat.com.au/app/uploads/2022/02/61ef336ce20443f20dc8b570.jpeg

Established histories have romanticised the Victorian Goldrush, obscuring the stories of the marginalised and notably omitting the displacement and dispossession of Indigenous peoples. In recent years, sites of death and tragedy have become a popular focus for Dark Tourism. Dark Tourism is seen as exploitative and unethical, or alternatively as claiming space for marginalised histories in public discourse. This panel discussion will consider the problematic histories of such sites, and the challenges and opportunities that Dark Tourism brings to heritage management and interpretation.

A Ballarat Heritage Festival event presented by the Eureka Centre in partnership with Tales from Rat City.
