y Don't Just Count Us, Let Us Count! Leilani Pearce , Leah Purcell (director), Brisbane : Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts Kuril Dhagun , 2017 11298296 2017 single work multimedia

'Ten years ago, the Aboriginal Centre for Performing Arts (ACPA) developed a show called Reflections: Referendum 40 years and to the future. The performance was a creative response to the anniversary of the 1967 Referendum when Australians voted overwhelmingly for constitutional change to count Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the national census.

'Don’t Just Count Us, Let Us Count! tells the story of this historic milestone through the eyes of ACPA alumni as they reflect on the creative process, research and the performance which shaped who they are today and their understanding of the campaign to be counted.' (Production summary)
