Australia, home of the 'fair go'. But is it really the free and fair place you'd hope for? What can we change?

From noisy protest to quiet persistence, Disrupt, persist, invent explores the many ways people have achieved social change in Australia.

Discover powerful stories of people and their actions, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Learn about Australia's progress in areas such as women's rights, marriage equality, science and technological invention and much more.

You may even be inspired to create lasting change in your own community, within your city or for all Australians.

This exhibition is supported by Visions of Australia and the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program.
