In 2002 a nationwide student art collaboration was announced. Every one of Australia’s three thousand secondary schools received a letter inviting art teachers to send student concepts for a national SIEVX memorial. The only stipulation was for a design that could be built on the lakeshore of the national capital Canberra. Read more about the project.
The Siev X Memorial Project has been given permission to install the memorial poles in Weston Park, Canberra, for 7 weeks in September, October 2007.
The memorial will be launched on September 2nd at 2pm, in Weston Park. Project originator, Steve Biddulph will be talking, and Mr Jon Stanhope, ACT Chief Minister, will again be officiating.
