My War? is a multi-arts project for young people (14 – 25 years) that explores the connections between Anzac ‘culture’ and contemporary youth culture. At its core the project asks “how is Anzac part of my story?". In workshops in dance, theatre, writing and design young people from the Great Southern have been gathering twice a week under the leadership of director, Annette Carmichael. On the first weekend of November 2014 the project will launch the My War? film clips and e-zine at an exhibition of writing and photographs at the Vancouver Arts Centre, Albany. With additional financial support, My War? will become a full stage show to premiere in 2015. Further information is available at www.annettecarmichael.com.au.
My War? Is a project for the centenary of Anzac, presented by Creative Albany and supported by Lotterywest, City of Albany’s Vancouver Arts Centre and Albany Port Authority.
