    In Changed forever, stories of migrants who have resettled in Australia from war-torn countries are presented beside those of recent veterans of overseas service in the Australian Defence Force. This moving exhibition explores the impacts of global and civil conflict in changing lives and shaping contemporary Australia.

    All have been redefined by the emotional and physical dislocation of war, and seek to reconcile this with their new lives.

    Enhanced with art, objects, photographs, audio-visuals and interactives, their personal stories reflect the range and depth of experiences in conflict and life post war.

    Changed forever will tour these venues:

    11 September – October 2019 Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne
    24 October – 1 December 2019 Hume Global Learning Centre, Craigieburn
    February – March 2020 RSL Memorial Hall, Bendigo

    The Women's Royal Australian Army Corp (WRAAC) was established on 12 February 1951 to cover a manpower shortage due to the Korean War and national service. Previously women had served in the Australian Women's Army Service (AWAS) during the Second World War from August 1941 until June 1947. The WRAAC Reserve Association (Victoria) was founded in August 1976 with the desire to promote social functions for former members of 8/3 WRAAC Company. In November 2007 the name was changed to WRAAC Association (Victoria) Inc. Women who have or are serving in the Australian Military Forces may join the association to participate in social events, ceremonies and comradeship.
