St Johns Church, Parramatta
17-25 April, and pre-dawn on ANZAC day, 2018
To support the commemoration of ANZAC and to share local history in a new way, this animated graphic projection show commemorated Parramatta’s ANZAC legacy. It featured local heritage, stories of nurses, soldiers and veterans to illuminate a face of the St Johns church in the heart of Parramatta in the lead up to ANZAC day.
The projection accompanied other activities that commemorate and interpret Parramatta’s history, and ran nightly to accompany a local story reading, illuminating the church face from sunset until 8:30 PM. It was also projected early morning leading to the dawn service on ANZAC day.
Other photographic images and art-work are presented courtesy of the Australian War Memorial and the Department of Defence.
