‘The Missing’ wins a Commendation in Victorian Community History Awards
We are proud to announce that our Online Exhibition and Film ‘Ordinary People in Extraordinary Circumstances: The Missing’ has won a commendation in the Digital Storytelling category in the 2021 Victorian Community History Awards.
‘The Missing’ online exhibition and short documentary film explores two WW1 humanitarian efforts, Red Cross Information Bureau volunteers and war veteran post-war graves workers who laboured to help families grieve for the missing.
We congratulate the well-deserved winner of our category ‘A Miscarriage of Justice’, and congratulations also to all the other nominees and award winners.
Thanks to the awards organisers, and huge thanks to all the writers, archivists, researchers, curators, artists, volunteers and the partner organisations we worked with on The Missing project because it wouldn’t be a project if it wasn’t for them.
