To Heal The Nation

  • Exhibition time

To Heal the Nation shows how C.E.W. Bean’s childhood and wartime experiences shaped his vision for the Australian War Memorial and reflects on the nature of commemoration, considering how tradition, ceremony, and beauty assist us in approaching war and loss.

To Heal the Nation is the second part of the exhibition series A Home on a Southern Hill, which marks the 75th anniversary of the Memorial by telling the story of how the Memorial was brought into being, as well as exploring its history and contemporary relevance.
