Anzac Plaques – A Personal Ode

The Freemasons Victoria activation will be based at the Shrine of Remembrance, facilitating a community development project which aims to draw attention to the recognition of all people in all conflicts and their affected families and children.

ANZAC Day 25 April 2017

Shrine of Remembrance

Birdwood Avenue, Melbourne

The Event

The Freemasons Victoria activation will be based at the Shrine of Remembrance where Bro. Sankar Nadeson will be facilitating a community development project, aiming to draw attention to the recognition of all peoples in all conflicts and their affected families and children.

The mechanism for this experience will be the making of ANZAC Commemorative Plaques, by the simple and accessible process of inscribing and shaping clay into a meaningful object of reflection and remembrance.

On the Day

On this day, the community at large will have the opportunity through this process to come together and form personal odes harnessing the reflections and sentiments of this national day of remembrance.

The completed clay plaques will be fired by Sankar and retained for the use of a large-scale community memorial located permanently in Melbourne CBD.

Come along and participate!

Bring your family and friends to be part of ANZAC Day 2017 in a very special way.

Join us and the wider community of Victorians to produce clay commemorative plaques that will be a permanent record of your emotions and sentiments of the day.

This program is fully endorsed by RSL Victoria, and is vetted by the ANZAC Day Chief Marshall.
