2016 saw the project encompass all of the Central Coast region with all RSL Sub-Branches and associated clubs on the Central Coast getting involved, with all clubs allowing us to display the artworks and poetry in their foyers on ANZAC Day. 2016 saw at least one veteran from each of the RSL Sub Branches participate, including members from the Vietnam Veterans Peacekeepers and Peacemakers Association. A total of 23 veterans participated and over 40 visual and written artists. The Australian Spirit exhibition was exhibited at Art Studios Gallery and Ettalong Diggers foyer for a 1 month period and once again the foyers of RSL/Service clubs on ANZAC Day.
(Australian Spirit 2016 was made possible thanks to Gosford City Council’s 2015 Community Funding Program. )
