Open now Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) will commemorate 100 years of the Anzac spirit (1914-18) by creating 100 Living Memorials across Australia through their Living Memorials program.
This program will support locally driven activities that engage the community in commemorative events across Australia. The program aims to recognise an individual local hero or community activity linked to the Centenary of Anzac.
Living Memorials will deliver 100 commemorative projects at 100 sites across Australia allowing communities to get involved and commemorate the centenary of Anzac.
Individuals and community groups are invited to nominate projects for consideration. These can be new or existing projects in the community requiring additional support.
Projects may include the restoration of existing Avenues of Honour, the creation of new living memorials such as community gardens or commemorative tree plantings or refurbishment of heritage buildings. Consideration will also be given to community memorials including Memorial Halls and War Memorials requiring support.
All nominated projects will be assessed with priority given to those projects working with the support of the Returned and Services League (RSL).
To nominate a project for the Living Memorials program go to the CVA website and complete a Project Nomination Form.
CVA is also looking for sponsors of the program. If your organisation would like to support a project contact the Partnerships team
