MTG Anzac activity recognises family history

Media Release

MTG Anzac activity recognises family history

Drop into the Main Foyer at MTG over Anzac weekend to share in our community’s WWI history.

Write about your family’s Anzac connection on a commemorative card in the Anzac Stories display. The cards will be featured in an online gallery and selected stories will be pinned to a feature wall in the Main Foyer.

Whether a great-grandfather who fought in Egypt, a great-great-aunt who tended the wounded or a distant cousin who never came home, each card will tell a unique story from the region’s past.

“As a museum, it is important not only to commemorate the Anzacs as a whole,” says Todd Dixon, MTG’s Public Programmes Coordinator, “but to give our community a way to celebrate their own family legacies. We want to create a dialogue as well as a display.”

The activity will be available for contributions from Thursday 24 to Sunday 27 April, while the online gallery will be up until the end of May.
