The Museum of Chinese in Australia (MOCA) will:
• Collect, study, research, conserve, display and interpret the history, heritage and material culture of the
Chinese in Australia.
• Make this accessible to the Australian public.
• Recognise the role and importance of oral history in capturing the cultural story of Chinese settlers and their descendants, understanding their difficulties, contributions and achievements
and the effects on family life.
• Identify, record, and lobby for the preservation of important cultural sites, buildings, archives and objects relevant to Chinese settlers in the past
and in recent times.
• Promote and support curriculum-based education and other educational activities including exhibitions, publications, grants and other forms of assistance.
• Work with others in the study of Chinese communities
throughout the world.
MOCA appreciates that the current Haymarket community is a diverse one, and that in addition to Chinatown there is now also a
Thai Town and a Korea Town.
The Chinese community is also diverse, with descendants
from the early Cantonese settlers and those Chinese who migrated to countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia many years ago. There are also large numbers of new Mandarin-speaking Chinese and overseas students.
We aim to be inclusive and welcoming to the entire community who visit us, or who seek our help.
