The Silent ANZAC project aim to:
- To commemorate the sacrifices of Australian service men and women during WW1;
- To provide audiences with a moving and memorable performance that honours the memory of our ANZAC forebears;
- To renew links with the local communities in France and Belgium where Australians fought and died;
- To enhance the cultural significance of the 100th anniversary of the armistice of WW1;
- To specifically commemorate the service men and women from Maribyrnong who lost their lives.
- To provide a lasting record of the WW1 commemorations for our community and future generations.
- Provide connections for our current and younger generations with those men and women who served in WW1.
- Represent the City of Maribyrnong as cultural ambassadors during this armistice centenary period to similar municipalities in the UK, France and Belgium.
You are invited to dedicate a poppy which will be laid by the band in a commemorative service at the Australian National Memorial near Villers-Bretonneux, France, in November 2018.
This service will be recorded and live streamed for audiences at home.
