The Museum of Australian Democracy explores the stories of people who shape and challenge democracy. You can help the museum tell that story by donating a badge that you have worn to communicate a message important to you.
Badges communicate an unspoken message. For over a century, Australians have worn badges to express their identity, solidarity, dissent, pride, anger, celebration, commemoration, protest, humour or hope.
Your badge is a snapshot of Australia’s evolving democracy. Your experience of wearing that badge is part of our history and future.
