The Great Badge swap wants your badge

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.
