In 1919 Charles Bean made a sketch that depicted his vision for Australia’s “war memorial museum”.
Partnered with Ortelia Interactive Spaces, the Memorial presents Bean’s original concept online
as a navigable 3D environment that incorporates more than 400 mapped images of the First World
War. Join Memorial curators as they demonstrate this new interactive, and explore the origins of the official art and photography programs.
