Behind the scenes of the Voice referendum, Australia’s museums are already collecting the history of tomorrow

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Australians are being flooded with information in the lead-up to the Indigenous Voice to Parliament referendum. Corflute signs, printed T-shirts, graffiti and leaflets from both the “yes” and “no” campaigns are everywhere. While this is happening, our museums are working to document the event in real time, to create the historical collections of the future. But what should our museums collect from the sea of information and imagery to represent how Australians feel about the referendum? What obligations and challenges do our national museums face in collecting today for tomorrow?
