Yes: The Ongoing Story of the 1967 Referendum

To mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum, the Museum of Australian Democracy is launching a new, collaborative exhibition.

The national referendum on 27 May 1967 was a historic one. An overwhelming majority of Australians – over 90 per cent – voted 'Yes' to allowing the federal government to make laws in relation to Aboriginal people and to allowing Aboriginal people to be included in the census.

In Yes: The Ongoing Story of the 1967 Referendum, discover the historic events and strong relationships involved in making the referendum happen and explore the significance of the referendum today.

Yes: The Ongoing Story of the 1967 Referendum is a joint exhibition by the Museum of Australian Democracy, the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies and Reconciliation Australia.
