Put on your curator gloves and explore objects connected to democracy. Who handled these objects, why do they hold significance?
In this two hour education program explore the development of democracy in South Australia. Who are some of the key players? Whose voices are silenced?
Using constructivist learning methodology, students will be supported to investigate objects and the connection to democracy. Who is eligible to become an Australian citizen? When did Aboriginal people get the right to vote? When did women get the right to vote? What is the power of a petition? What role have trade unions played in the development of democracy?
Students will spend time exploring the objects and then exploring the Gallery.
