Stop and remember
On Sunday 11 November 2018, Queensland will commemorate the centenary anniversary of the signing of the Armistice—the historic agreement that led to the end of the First World War. There are a lot of events and activities to commemorate this special event and tributes to those who served during the First World War. One of them is "The Armistice Centenary Public Art" installation. This statewide art installation was commissioned by the Queensland Government.
