The bastion of Queensland’s collective knowledge, the State Library of Queensland, has recently joined the KDPR family of clients. We are working with SLQ to launch two new exhibitions this year – Freedom Then, Freedom Now and Don’t Just Count Us, Let Us Count!

Launching to the public on Friday May 5, the two complementary exhibitions implore us to look at questions of freedom and social liberty – to see where we’ve come from and help us with the ideation of where we’re going.

For the first time in Queensland’s history, artifacts such as the suitcase of Indigenous rights’ activist Lambert McBride (1918 – 2002), will be displayed to the public. The battered red suitcase was used to carry pamphlets during McBride’s tireless campaigning for Aboriginal rights throughout Queensland, encouraging people to register for the electoral roll.
