Freedom Then, Freedom Now – exhibition
May 5 - October 1 | 10:00am - 5:00pm
From citizenship, censorship and the collective good to marriage, miniskirts and mortgages – and everything in between – what are the freedoms that Queenslanders take for granted?
Freedom Then, Freedom Now is an intriguing journey into our recent past exploring the freedoms enjoyed and restricted in Queensland and examines what happens when collective good intersects with individual rights. Freedoms often depend on age, racial or religious background, gender, income and where you live. Freedoms change over time and with public opinion.
This exhibition draws on the extensive collections of SLQ to reminisce, reflect on and explore freedoms lost and won in Queensland.
