For Country for Nation

An Australian War Memorial Touring Exhibition
Presented by Araluen Arts Centre

Stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experience during wartime and peace

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a long standing tradition of fighting for Country, and continue to serve with honour among our military forces.

They have also worked in ancillary, industry, and other home-front activities, and their communities have been thrust into the front line of theatres of war.

For Country, for Nation, the first touring exhibition from the Australian War Memorial to come to the Araluen Arts Centre, highlights these important and complex stories. It explores themes of remembrance and tradition through family histories, objects, art, and photographs from across Australia, drawing inspiration from cultural traditions and symbols of warrior’s discipline, knowledge, leadership, and skill.
