Description

This work covers post war topics as well as WW1 as a whole. It has sections on the 1918 battles, and is relevant for the Centenary of the ending of WW1 as celebrated in 1918.

This program captures the diversity of war memorials that proliferated across Australia in the aftermath of World War One – in particular the small memorials that were constructed independently in communities and towns

It will celebrate and portrays the experiences of ex-soldiers and communities that led to memorial construction, through selected and expert select interviews, archival images and footage, re-enactments, and visits to 100 memorials across Australia. The work aims to refresh perception and understanding of objects that have become familiar over time and are sometimes overlooked.

The aim is to provide an engaging experience for a broad audience of a unique perspective on the impact of the war on Australia, that remains relevant today.
