About the exhibition

Revolution comes in many forms – homemade protest badges from the 1980s, wooden water purifier barrels from the 1800s, a red anarchy flag flown by pioneering unionist ‘Chummy’ Flemming and a newly commissioned artwork challenging disposable camping culture at festivals.

The changing face of Victoria exhibition explores the spirit of activism and invention, and its impact on modern Victoria, through four everyday themes: water, workers’ rights, camping and coffee.

On showcase are more than 150 objects, artworks and photographs that reveal the large and small ways we can all make a difference in shaping our world. 90 per cent of these collection items have never been exhibited before.
