“The Search for HMAS Sydney – An Australian Story”.

For this presentation, Charlie & Joan will share their thoughts on the creative processes linking art and commemoration, with particular focus on their National Memorial to HMAS Sydney II, Geraldton, presented as a visual narrative, with Power Point.

The relevance of this project is the fact that it was a huge undertaking by a very small West Australian Regional Rotary Club, in Geraldton.

Of special note is the inspiration and vision demonstrated by this small group, the end result of which, was the creation of an Australian National Memorial that has been voted, by Trip Advisor with 350 million members, in the top 10 of Public Icons to visit in Australia and number 12 out of 25 in the Pacific region. 

Their talk will focus on the narrative of this amazing journey based upon the chapter they were invited to write by the editors of the book: 

“The Search for HMAS Sydney – An Australian Story.” Their chapter is Chapter 12: "The Rest is Silence…a Moving Memorial to Sydney’s Lost Souls.”
