'Of Service' launch

Event Details

Thursday, 20 June 2024 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne, 3004
  • This venue is wheelchair accessible.

Join us for the official launch of the powerful fine-art publication, Of Service, which uncovers the diverse stories of more than 100 veterans and their lives beyond service. 

Over three years, artist and photographer Jenani Therone travelled around the country to speak with veterans about their interests and passions beyond their military careers. This book is a culmination of these conversations and provides a powerful insight into life after service. Accompanied by evocative photographic portraits, Of Service paints a striking picture of our veterans from the Second World War to the modern day. 

At this launch event, veterans will discuss their experiences of being involved with this project and the profound impact of sharing their stories.  Jenani Therone will uncover her processes and the significance of gathering these reflections. 

Copies of Of Service will be available for purchase and light refreshments will be provided.

This is event is free for Shrine Friends and volunteers.
