Event Details

Coming to SLQ for the Grattan Institute's State of Affairs lecture on political fragmentation? Discover more on the topic with a free guided tour of SLQ's current exhibition Freedom Then, Freedom Now.

From drinking, smoking and gambling to voting, marrying and travelling — and everything in between — what are the freedoms that Queenslanders take for granted?

Freedom Then, Freedom Now is an intriguing journey into our recent past exploring the freedoms enjoyed and restricted in Queensland, and examines what happens when collective good intersects with individual rights. Freedoms often depend on age, racial or religious background, gender, income and where you live. Freedoms change over time and with public opinion.

This exhibition draws on the extensive collections of SLQ to reminisce, reflect on and explore freedoms lost and won in Queensland.

Date: Thursday 17 August

Tour times:

  • 5pm–5.30pm (complimentary drink from 5.30pm in the White Gloves Room, level 4)
  • 5.30pm–6pm (complimentary drink from 5pm in the White Gloves Room, level 4)
