This is a great idea.
The National Museum of Ireland has begun to preserve the artwork created by both sides during the Eighth Amendment campaign.
After the vote, Brenda Malone, one of the curators of the National Museum, took to Twitter to ask people for artwork, banners and posters for the collection.
I’m collecting for the National Museum - I’m looking for a banner that was out on the marches (or on display during the campaign) for the collection to record this moment - please get in touch if you have any banners to have preserved in the National Collections

Some people got back to her with some really creative signs.
I have knitted and crocheted various things for repeal if that’s of interest. Sign was at the march for choice 2017. pic.twitter.com/oZUMPNM7zg

Recently, she tweeted saying she was still "filling the gaps" of the collection.
I'm still filling the gaps for the National Museum in relation to the 8th Campaign - I'd love to collect a boarding pass, ticket or something similar from someone who came home to vote in the referendum - anybody know anyone who could give me something to represent them?

Do you have anything that you'd be willing to part with?
