General Peter Cosgrove
Please note, this forum is for council members only
The Forum features:
It will cover a wide range of topics including:
War Memorials form an essential part of many Local Government streetscapes and the focal point of many municipal parks.
These war memorials vary enormously in size, shape and materials, ranging from stand alone structures, to cannons, statues, obelisks, plaques and honour boards. Their care and maintenance, interpretation and the opportunities they provide for community involvement is an issue that many Councils are grappling with.
With the Centenary of the outbreak of World War One in 2014, and the Gallipoli campaign in 2015, there is particular current interest in the presence of war memorials in our urban landscape.
The Arts and Cultural Development Program of Local Government NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW.
