11 artists working in a range of media have responded to, reflected, commented about and deconstructed Dora Meeson’s painting which features in Australia at War 1914- 1945.

The commissioned works explore the human story depicted by Meeson, projecting the internal world of each of the protagonists, what the moment symbolizes individually and for a nation or how the story plays out a generation on.
