Baxter Immigration Detention Center was one the first detention centers where Australians started to visit refugees and asylum seekers. Many Australians were like "Are you visiting the center? They are dangerous and illegals". Baxter visitors broke the stigma. There were four women known as Baxter Mums.
The exhibition will show lots of stories from Baxter from time to date. I will give more information asap.
