In Jarjums Life Museum you won’t see dinosaurs, butterflies, kings’ crowns or queens’ capes.
It is a museum made by children – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Jarjums.
It is a collection of original works documenting the lives of these Jarjums – they’re here and now and what life is like growing up today.
Here are self-portraits of some of the Jarjums from Minjerribah – North Stradbroke Island and Hymba Yumba Community Place.

The foundations laid by these ancestors - our First Nations Peoples - gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, towards creating a better Queensland.
