At this event, acclaimed Australian artist Anna Taylor will show and talk about her project ‘Home Sweet Home – a Memorial’. All are welcome, and the event is free to attend.
‘Home Sweet Home – a Memorial’ honours the living, the women and children who support their loved ones living with the after-effects of the war experience. The project has been created to pay tribute and raise awareness of the generations of families who have vicariously experienced the impact of war trauma.
Anna writes: ‘The need for a Memorial to women and children came to me in 1997, when I understood the generational impact of war in my own family. This impact has occurred in many family homes across our society, yet is perhaps only now being acknowledged.’
