York Residency Museum is creating a major exhibition for the Shire of York to commemorate the Centenary of ANZAC during 2018. As a regional partner in the W.A. Museum’s state-wide programme ‘Walk With Us - Remembering Them’ this will be the most significant ANZAC exhibition to be shown in the Wheatbelt.

The exhibition promises to be a powerful evocation of the real people of York, revealing their lives in a poignant and hard-hitting reality. It includes an art installation of 100 life size ANZAC silhouettes in addition to a comprehensive overview of the events of WW1 and the effects on those left behind in York.

The whole family can experience this never before seen exhibition which features a comfy sofa rest area with hands-on children’s activities, a ‘cinema experience’ to show WW1 photographs never seen before as well as the chance to find out if you have a York ANZAC ancestor.  The exhibition will open on ANZAC Day and run until 25 July 2018. Don’t miss it!
