Dedicated to preserving Australia's history
Facts give us the timeline. The what, where and when of an event.
Stories give us depth and richness. They give us the chance to learn, reflect, connect and be moved.
Our Veteran Stories Matter
Interviewing veterans and creating video documentaries of their personal stories is an important way to preserve the experiences and legacies of those who have served in the military. This Story Australia seeks to provide insights into their experiences and help build a deeper understanding of the sacrifices they have made to serve their country.
The benefits of capturing these unique stories provides immeasurable benefit to the veterans themselves, their families and the community by:
- Preserving history in a modern, engaging medium
- Honouring the service of our veterans all year round
- Providing a safe platform for veterans to share their stories
- Building community support and connection
- Create a platform for reflection and healing
- Reducing the stigma surrounding physical and mental health wounds
It is often through adversity that the greatest opportunities lay. We can learn from the mistakes and the triumphs. From from the heroism and the resilience. Mostly, we can learn from their humility.
This Story Australia has had the honour of capturing stories from WWII veterans through to those who are currently serving. Our documentary interviews include the stories of men and women from all backgrounds and cultures and include the incredible experiences of First Nations Australians.
We share stories through the lens of those who experienced it first-hand. Through the highs and the lows, through the triumphs and the adversity, through the losses and the loves and through the struggles with physical and/or mental wounds, each story will leave you wanting to hear more and do more to support our veterans.
These are their stories….
