Anzac War Memorial | Anzac Square Brisbane
About The Project
The cultural significance of this artwork cannot be understated. This memorial is the first of its kind in Australia, marking a significant story of historical truth-telling, adversity, mateship and reconciliation.
In 2015, Liam Hardy was shortlisted to submit concepts for a State Memorial to commemorate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Service Men and Women who served in Australian Conflicts from the Boer War until the present.
Along with Indigenous Artist John Gumbula, Liam embarked on a Project spanning seven years to the unveiling in May 2022. We urge you to watch the documentary below about this once in a lifetime sculptural project.
This journey has been encapsulated by LiveLab at Griffith Film School in a short documentary titled ‘Crafting the Anzac Square Indigenous Veterans’ Memorial’. The film delves into the genesis and creation of Queensland’s memorial for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander veterans in Anzac Square, highlighting its profound cultural and historical importance.
