About us

Welcome to the Australian Living Peace Museum, an online museum dedicated to telling the stories of Australia’s heritage of peace and non-violence, and how they are based in social justice. This is a virtual museum – rather than holding our own collection we tell stories of peace and non-violence using collection items held in Australia’s public museums, libraries and art galleries, or in private collections.

The ALPM is committed to sound scholarship, a participatory framework and community-oriented perspectives.

 We are always looking for new contributions for our site. If you are interested in contributing, please contact us.

 The Australian Living Peace Museum is a volunteer-led, community based organisation that aims to foster a culture of peace reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of peace efforts made personally by individuals and by organisations past and present. It does so in accord with a range of local, national and international contexts relating to disarmament, human rights, ecology, reconciliation (including Indigenous responses to colonisation), education and the growth of international humanitarian law. If you share these aims, please consider joining the Museum.
