Democracy. Are You In? is a contemporary exhibition that aims to encourage visitors to recognise that our freedoms and our way of life are built on the foundation of democracy.

The exhibition at the Museum of Australian Democracy explores powerful stories of democracy in action through a series of photographs, objects and audiovisual displays.

Moments from Australia’s democratic journey are presented including the 1967 referendum.

Be inspired to understand the power of your voice in shaping the future of our nation.
