Project Albany and The Centenary of the Great War
Project Albany was funded by the Anzac Centenary Board to digitise the repatriation records of the First World War. The project revealed the stories of soldiers returning from war and their families, many of which did not fit the over-arching narrative of Anzac. This exhibition deals with the sanitisation of war, and how the availability of archives and their findings are high politicised as well as exploring some of the stories to come out of the digitisation project.
