Style Magazine - - Style | Promotion -

The much-loved art and com­mu­nity hub Dog­wood Cross­ing, Miles wants to share the other side of the AN­ZAC’S story, and is call­ing on res­i­dents to help.

The John Mullins Me­mo­rial Art Gallery, lo­cated in the coun­try town of Miles on the Western Downs, around two-and-a-half hours north-west of Toowoomba, will host the ex­hi­bi­tion Home­com­ing, a Lo­cal Per­spec­tive: Nav­i­gat­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of re­turn­ing from con­flict. The ex­hi­bi­tion will open Satur­day, Novem­ber 10, 2018. The ex­hi­bi­tion aims to ex­plore facets of the An­zac story, apart from the bul­lets and bat­tles, that are of­ten over­looked.

Home­com­ing will look at the re­al­ity com­mu­ni­ties and fam­i­lies ex­pe­ri­enced when ser­vice per­son­nel re­turned home from any con­flict from WWI to the present day.

Sub­mis­sions of sto­ries are invited from any­one with a per­sonal con­nec­tion to the Western Downs re­gion to con­trib­ute to this com­mem­o­ra­tive ex­hi­bi­tion.
