Our Hills Anzac Story will collect local stories on how service affected the local community through voice recording, filming, images and still photos to be presented in a series of murals about the local impacts of World War I. The vision is to create an inclusive community that has strong ties to its past and future, embracing the role service men and women have played in shaping our community. The stories will be shared in a school setting with RSL members and students, and a qualified artist will interpret the stories and collate them into a timeline of murals that will be displayed in Mount Barker.
