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.
