what will the museum of the future be like?
I am currently working with the RSL WA State Archivist Naomi Jones on the RSL Living History Project. We are hoping to raise the profile of the project through our Blog and Facebook page (please Follow and/or Like us if you can).
The RSL Living History Project is a three year project undertaken with the support of Lotterywest. The RSL has existed in some form in Western Australia since 1916 with sub-branches opening throughout the State to support the needs of returned service personnel. The RSL is a community organisation and the history of the League is not one story but many stories told through the sub-branches of the League.
The aim of the project is to capture the history of the sub-branches (through the collection of photographs, documentation and oral histories) in Western Australia celebrating the role of the RSL in the community both in supporting returned service personnel and in fostering the ideals of ANZAC. The RSL Living History Project aims to capture these histories and present them in the form of an online exhibition.
