Centre of Democracy – Curator’s tours

Feature image for event

Join the Centre of Democracy curatorial team for a short tour of this new attraction on North Terrace. South Australians can claim and celebrate a number of significant democratic milestones. These include the radically democratic Constitution of 1856, which gave all men, including Aboriginal men, the right to vote – by secret ballot. In 1894, South Australian women were among the first in the world to win the right to vote, and the first in the world to be able to stand for parliament. The Centre of Democracy celebrates these and other important milestones. We encourage you to enjoy rarely seen treasures drawn from state, private and organisational collections, including Governor Gawler’s plumes and even former Premier Don Dunstan’s famous pink shorts.
