Details

Tweed Regional Museum’s latest exhibition, Fight for the Right, highlights the Tweed community’s passion for activism and protest, and their response to issues that united, and at times, divided the Tweed.

Through historic objects, photographs and video, the exhibition provides visitors with an insight into how protest has shaped the Shire and its community. From the social justice campaigns of the 1960s, right through to current day issues, Fight for the Right reflects the passion shown by the community on a wide range of issues, from social justice to development and environmental protection.

A special object on display is a pair of gloves that belonged to civil rights activist, Faith Bandler, who campainged for Aboriginal rights in the 1967 Australian referendum. The gloves are on loan from the National Museum of Australia. Also featured are protest banners from the Save Wollumbin Forest campaign, video from the World Rally Car Championship protest and an extensive range of photographs and media coverage over the years.

The exhibition will be on display at Tweed Regional Museum, 2 Queensland Road, Murwillumbah until 29 January 2022. See museum.tweed.nsw.gov.au for opening hours.
