REMEMBRANCE & celebration 

"The process of active remembrance by a community is very rewarding in its
own right, they sing the songs and tell the stories. How it is then interpreted in
the public realm is very important as it must have a wonderful simplicity of
concept and be beautifully crafted in materials that will stand the test of time."
"At a fundamental level wherever people have chosen to settle, we have built
physical places and a cultural life that tells a community story. Over time this
narrative becomes laid down like strata to then be unearthed and reinterpreted
by new creative practitioners of the day"
"I have particular interest in the role artists play in remembrance and have felt
honoured and deeply moved seeing particular memorials and projects we
have created being wholeheartedly embraced by a community, transcending
the personality of the artist that created it."
Stephen Broadbent
