Synthetic Creative Services

Projects Under $15,000 2019

An exhibition, based on the thesis, Unley’s Own – Returning Home, by Sandra Kearney, that explores the personal experiences of soldiers of the 27th Australian Infantry Battalion as they returned home to resume their lives in the suburb of Unley, after service at the front during the Great War.

Through personal accounts and dialogue, collected and passed down memorabilia and keepsakes, the exhibition tells individual life stories of some of these soldiers and examines the circumstances unique to the City of Unley that played a role in what was a positive experience for many.
