ANZAC Day NYC 2020: ANZAC Day New York 2020
Our ANZAC Day NYC 2020 #ANZACDayNYC ZOOM event will featured live performances by leading Australians in New York. This ANZAC Day NYC we are bringing together Australians in NYC and across the USA through song, poetry and reading letters from those on the front line at Gallipoli and the Somme.
Wikipedia defines ANZAC Day as a national day of remembrance that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”. Observed on 25 April each year, Anzac Day was originally devised to honor the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served in the Gallipoli Campaign, their first engagement in the First World War (1914–1918).
Bringing together The Australian Community at a time when Australians are experiencing isolation, is core to our Mission as a non-profit organization. Our vision for #ANZACDayNYC 2020 is to use ZOOM to connect Australians on ANZAC Day – and not just in NYC!
