I wanted to alert readers of my blog to this travelling exhibition, which you may or may not have heard about.
The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience is a travelling exhibition that tells the story of Australia’s involvement in the First World War, and the ensuing Century of Service of Australia’s armed forces in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australia has been involved.
It has already visited some cities but quite a few opportunities remain on the schedule to see it:
|Tamworth||Apr – May 2016|
|Port Augusta||Nov 2016|
|Perth||Nov – Dec 2016|
|Kalgoorlie||Jan – Feb 2017|
The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience follows a chronological timeline spanning the period from pre-First World War Australia to the present day, using a mix of visuals, artefacts, audio and film to engage visitors.
An important feature of the experience will be the curated ‘local stories’ zone. These zones will be created with the local communities and will contribute a legacy for each region. The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience is the flagship community event of the Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary national programme.
