Flyer - 'Same Difference' Exhibition, Melbourne Justice Museum, circa 2006 Document Reg. No: HT 22918

Flyer featuring image of red and blue hearts, and text, advertising the Swinburne University student exhibition 'Same Difference', held at the Melbourne Justice Museum circa 2006.
According to the brochure accompanying the exhibition, 'Same Difference is a visual response to unacceptable levels of discrimination that gay and lesbian people continue to experience as a result of their sexual orientation.'
The exhibition was 'embraced' by Swinburne University as a student project that 'encourages its students to think about how they can use their skills to make a difference on this planet.' It appears to have been auspiced by the Swinburne School of Communication and Design.
Flyer featuring image of red and blue hearts on a background on left side, and black background to text on right side. Includes logos for the Rural Network Committee, Swinburne University, National Trust and Melbourne Justice Museum.
