Fostering creative and artistic excellence in the youth of Northern Rivers
The ANZAC project involves the commissioning of six creative projects from young people aged 14-22 years.
The aim of the project is to engage young people in the Northern Rivers with the memory of war and the ANZAC legacy.
This project is supported by a grant from the Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund and the venue provided by Southern Cross University.
