November 19 is World Toilet Day. It was established by the World Toilet Organisation in 2004 to raise awareness about the need for improved toilets and sanitation systems.

To celebrate World Toilet Day this year, the Australian Toilet Organisation is holding an exhibition entitled "Where Would You Hide?" at the State Library in Melbourne. ATO's partner for this exhibit is WaterAid Australia.

The exhibition was developed by the German Toilet Organisation and is supported by UN Water.

"Where Would You Hide?" is a travelling exhibition, which has been touring prominent public places, conferences and museums since 2006. Its success relies on the simple fact that all societies have problems of some kind with this pressing issue, but most lack an acceptable platform to voice them. This exhibition is an effective taboo-breaker. Wherever the exhibition travels, visitors learn to reflect on their own toilet needs and have their eyes opened to the global relevance of this issue.
