About the Memories of War Project

The Memories of War project commemorates the centenary of WW1 in Ballarat and connects young people today to events that took place a hundred years ago. Students from Federation University Australia discovered and told stories of Ballarat people affected by the Great War. Members of the Ballarat community shared and continue to share their stories on the Ballarat Gold Museum Memories of War Blog.

A documentary film ‘The Last Goodbye’ based on the research findings was produced by Wind & Sky Productions in 2015.

The Memories of War Film and Research Project was a collaboration between the Ballarat RSL, Federation University Australia, the Ballarat Gold Museum, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka and Wind & Sky Productions. It was funded by the Australian Government Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program and the Victorian Government Anzac Centenary Major Grants Program.
