This event is now in the past.

Join us with this exhibition marking the 30th anniversary of the 1982 Commonwealth Games, a time when Brisbane came alive with political demonstrations for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander civil liberties.

Reflect on the events that took place in Brisbane, the political climate of the time and the history of land rights for Indigenous Australians with this exhibition of original footage, photographs and personal stories from advocators of this revolutionary movement.
