From War to Remembrance Family Day
Hand crafted poppy field in the exhibition
Let the kids exercise their imagination and discover more about the RSL with a fun free Family Day, part of the From War to Remembrance: A Living History of the RSL exhibition.
Kids can get creative and build their own war memorial from LEGO® blocks, and check out a scale model of the WA State Memorial made entirely from LEGO® by the WA Brick Society. They also have the chance to win a $100 LEGO® voucher by simply posting a photo of their creation on the RSL Living History Project Facebook Page and the photo with the most likes will win.
There will also be a station for poppy making where kids can create their own paper poppy, similar to an art installation featured at the exhibition.
Whilst the young ones get creative, the adults can explore the rest of the exhibition including a handcrafted art installation by artists Smash Creation, interactive displays and a selection of objects collected from the RSL’s 132 WA branches, most being featured for the first time.
The Family Day is run by the State Library of WA and volunteers will be supervising and helping the kids with their creations.
From War to Remembrance - A Living History of the RSL is presented by The Returned & Services League of Western Australia WA Branch Incorporated in partnership with the State Library of Western Australia and supported by Lotterywest and 720 ABC Perth. The exhibition celebrates the formation, purpose and activities of the RSL in Western Australia and runs from 20 April to 30 June 2013 at the State Library of Western Australia.
