Without Consent reveals the truth of Australia’s past

Creche scene

Wanneroo Gallery Opening Times Monday to Saturday // 10:00am to 4:00pm (closed Sundays)

The exhibition is closed from 25th Dec – 2nd Jan inclusive and re-opens on Jan 3rd 2017.

Wanneroo Gallery will be home to a new exhibition Without Consent: Australia’s past adoption practices, which brings to light a previously hidden aspect of Australia’s past.

The exhibition has been curated by the National Archives of Australia and it has offered those affected by forced adoptions the opportunity to share their experiences – some for the first time ever.

It is estimated that at least 150,000 adoptions took place from the 1950s to the 1970s; a significant number of them were forced adoptions.  Many of the women who had their babies taken were unmarried and, because of the stigma attached to unmarried mothers at the time, were often forced to live a lie for decades. For some, it was a secret they took to their graves. 

The National Archives have also developed a website, following former Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s national apology to those affected by forced adoptions and it aims to show the truth – that the babies taken for adoption were dearly loved and wanted by their parents.

The exhibition is a tribute to the courage and generosity of those who volunteered to share their experiences and, in doing so, exposed this aspect of Australia’s history.
