The Government will provide $330,000 for seven projects that will tell the story of the Anzacs and how their sacrifice has helped shaped our nation, through a range of art forms.
Commemorative projects include:
$120,000 for the Australian War Memorial to host two artistic residency projects with Singapore and Korea, strengthening our engagement with both countries and commemorating our shared histories.
More than $89,000 for the Australian Tapestry Workshop to produce a major tapestry for the Sir John Monash Centre being built near Villers-Bretonneux.
Over $29,000 for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra to record works by the Australian-British composer Lieutenant-Commander Frederick Septimus Kelly.
$20,000 to Spoke Productions for the development of a performance and online project investigating Australia’s engagement with war and its effects.
The fund is part of the Anzac Centenary national program designed to commemorate the extraordinary deeds of ordinary men and women who fought and died for Australia in places of conflict over the past 100 years.
