Lemnos Interpretive Design Consultancy, Department of Veterans’ Affairs

Client: Department of Veterans Affairs Location: Lemnos, Greece Completed: 2020-current
Convergence has been working with the Department of Veterans Affairs to increase awareness and interpret the significant role that Australians on the Greek island of Lemnos played in the First World War Gallipoli campaign. In an initial scoping study, we developed and evaluated an interpretive strategy based on an accessible on-island and online visitor experience We established the historical overview and narrative and identified, assessed and recommended appropriate interpretive experiences to commemorate the significant cultural heritage of this remote place. In a second stage of the project Convergence developed the initial concept to include an interpretive toolkit and documented the preferred physical and digital elements. Visualisations and documentation formed the basis of a successful business case. Funding for the project was announced in the 2022 Federal budget and Convergence engaged to bring the project to completion.
