Why a Museum in Sydney? 為何在悉尼設博物館?

From the first recorded Chinese free settler who arrived in New

South Wales in 1818, the number of Chinese in Australia has grown to

become a major part of modern multicultural Australia. Two hundred

years from that first settler, there are more than 1.2 million Chinese

Australians - Australia-born, China-born, and from every part of Asia

and the world where Chinese people have settled over the last several

centuries. Theirs is a remarkable story in the history, settlement and

makeup of Australia, but it has no central repository or permanent

display in Sydney or New South Wales.


The Museum of Chinese in Australia (MOCA) proposes

to address that omission, by establishing a centre for the discovery,

preservation and promotion of the history of the Chinese in Australia,

in a dedicated museum space preferably in the Haymarket district of

Sydney, the city’s oldest surviving, and largest, Chinatown.

MOCA will be a major addition and complement to

Australia’s existing history and community museums, and will

work collaboratively with them, particularly museums of Chinese

Australians in other states and territories.


In the near term, with the passing of generations and

the potential loss of personal papers and other records, there is a

measure of urgency to the commencement of this project.


從第一個有記錄的華人自由定居者1818年抵達新南威爾士州

開始,澳洲華人不斷增長的數量已成為澳洲現代多元文化的

重大組成部分。距離第一個定居者二百多年來,超過一百二

十萬華裔、華僑成為澳籍華人,其中有出生于澳洲,出生于

中國,或幾個世紀以來移居亞洲各國及世界各地華僑後裔。

他們在澳大利亞的歷史、定居、構成等各方面都是一個非凡

的故事,但在悉尼或新南威爾士州並沒有儲存和展示其資

料的中心。


解決這一疏漏,澳洲華人博物館(MOCA)建議 -

最好在禧市(Haymarket),悉尼這座城市最古老最大的唐人

街 ,建立一個中心博物館,作為探索調查,保存和促進華人

在澳洲歷史的重點。


澳洲華人博物館 (MOCA) 將會為澳洲現有歷史和

社區博物館作重要增添和補充,並將與他們合作,特別是澳

大利亞其他州和領地的澳華博物館。

在近期內,隨著幾代人的逝去以及個人文件和其

他記錄潛在損失,該項目的啟動有一定程度的緊迫性。
