CURTIN Univer­sity has un­veiled a Re­mem­brance Day memo­rial in­stal­la­tion at its Bent­ley cam­pus, fea­tur­ing touch­ing mes­sages from stu­dents, staff and vis­i­tors.

Peo­ple can write mes­sages on the hearts to be sent to Aus­tralian troops spend­ing Christ­mas over­seas with­out their fam­i­lies.

The Town of Vic­to­ria Park has em­braced the art project as part of its own Re­mem­brance Day event.

It will fea­ture some Curtin hearts at the ser­vice for peo­ple to write on, which will then be re­turned to Curtin to be added to the in­stal­la­tion.

The in­stal­la­tion was cre­ated by Perth’s DUO Events Cre­ative Stu­dio.

The in­stal­la­tion runs un­til Novem­ber 17.

Re­mem­brance Day marks the an­niver­sary of the end of World War I.
