Right Wrongs: ’67 Referendum – WA 50 years on Sun 28 May 2017 – Fri 1 Sep 2017 10:00am – 3:00pm Museum of the Goldfields On 27 May 1967, Australians recorded the largest ever ‘Yes’ vote in a referendum to change the constitution. After a decade of campaigning, the 'Right Wrongs, Write Yes' catch-cry led to a symbolic victory for political and social recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 50 years on, we are challenged to consider just how far we have come, and where we are going. While there is much still to be done, the 1967 Referendum opened a doorway for change, and shone a spotlight on disadvantage and discrimination. Through a unique partnership, Right Wrongs: '67 Referendum explores the significance of this anniversary within the complex history of the ongoing struggle for Aboriginal rights in Western Australia. A major exhibition at the State Library of Western Australia reveals decades of activism through personal stories and powerful objects; satellite exhibitions at the Western Australian Museum's regional sites give local focus as members of the community reflect on the referendum and its meaning. The Museum of the Goldfields will be showcasing its community-focused exhibition until Friday 1 September. Right Wrongs: ’67 Referendum – WA 50 years on is proudly supported by the Australian Broadcasting Commission and the National Archives of Australia. #RightWrongsWA A free exhibition Online exhibition The 1967 Referendum was a monumental moment in Australian history.
