Bondi Story Room

Bondi Story Room is a collection of three spaces in Bondi Pavilion, that came out of previous consultation feedback and the Bondi Pavilion Stakeholder Committee. The vision for these spaces is that they would celebrate the rich history of Bondi culture in all its aspects, including:

  • Indigenous culture
  • current cultural events / attractions
  • surfing history / surfing culture
  • local culture across multiple nationalities
  • local history
  • information about the local environment

Waverley Council and TZG architects are working with industry leaders in museum experience design, Grumpy Sailor to help develop and deliver a design for Bondi Story Room.

What will it look like?

Taking this brief, Grumpy Sailor have conceived an interactive digital exhibition for the main space, to share and celebrate the many stories of our community.

Located at the west entry of the restored Bondi Pavilion, Bondi Story Room will reveal meaningful narratives, profile local identities, celebrate milestones and delve into Bondi life past and present. Bondi's broad and significant heritage will be featured through archival material, videos, photographs, sound and text.

Bondi Story Room is intended to evolve and change over time. The personalities and events profiled in the digital exhibition will continue to grow. All submissions will be reviewed and key figures identified for research and inclusion in the opening iteration of Bondi Story Room. The stories will be featured through archival material, videos, photographs, sound and text. Over the following years, more figures will be identified, researched and included as a growing and visible archive.

Have your say

We want to make sure Bondi Story Room incorporates the history, events and personalities you think are important.
