Travellers & Traders

Friday 27th January / presented by Gemma Sidney

For thousands of years and right up to today, merchants and sailors have crossed the world’s first highway – the Indian Ocean.

The exhibition Travellers and Traders in the Indian Ocean World is now showing at the WA Maritime Museum in Fremantle and provides an opportunity for us to discover the rich history and stories of the Indian Ocean.

Corioli Souter is co-curator of the exhibition and curator in the Maritime Archaeology Department at WA Shipwrecks Museum.

She joined Artbeat with Gemma Sidney to give us an insight on the exhibition and some of the stories it includes.
