Legacy mosaics

ANZAC Centenary, Legacy Street Art Project

Legacy is a charity that supports widows, children, and disable dependents of Australia’s injured or deceased military veterans.  Drewery Lane in downtown Melbourne runs behind Legacy House.  Over the four year Centenary of ANZAC period (2014 – 2018), Legacy plans to hold workshops that will allow the local community to interact and engage with the personal and shared histories of the Legacy Family.  Workshop participants will create clay tiles and plaques with some connection to WW1.  The plan is to attach 1000 of these mosaic pieces to the back of Legacy House.  In November 2015, the first tiles were installed.
