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.

  2. Tell us your story
  3. Donate your badge

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.

We invite you to share with us the personal experiences or memories your badge represents.

These badges and stories could become a permanent part of the Museum of Australian Democracy’s collection and feature in our exhibition Living Democracy.
