A day in the life of the AIRC


13 July 2007

The exhibition is currently divided over two locations: 80 William Street, East Sydney and 11 Exhibition Street, Melbourne

In 2004–05 the Australian Industrial Relations Commission celebrated its centenary as Australia’s national industrial tribunal. Several events were held to mark the occasion—a national conference, a book on the tribunal’s history, a travelling exhibition and a photographic project. The last of these is the subject of this exhibition.

The project involved taking photographs at AIRC premises around Australia over the course of a single day. The 100–year anniversary of the enactment of the Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Act 1904—Wednesday, 15 December 2004—was chosen as the day to highlight.
