This chapter explores how an Australian day and boarding college for male students between the ages of 10 and 17 partnered with a regional university to explore the centenary commemoration of World War 1 through an Australian Government Arts and Culture Public Fund grant. The respective institutions eschewed traditional commemorative options such as statues, honour rolls and community histories and instead utilised a range of arts forms including music, visual art, multimedia and literature to commemorate the ANZAC Centenary. This approach allowed for an alternative vision with major outputs including four large-scale dioramas, a six-panel textile artwork, a children’s picture book, a museum display and a sound and light show projected onto the heritage listed main building of the college.
