The Bondi Memorial | Public Launch

ACON and Waverley Council invite you to the community launch of the Bondi Memorial.

The Bondi Memorial is dedicated to all the victims and survivors targeted during a spate of homophobic and transphobic violence from the 1970s to the 1990s in Sydney and NSW.

Located in Marks Park in Tamarama – where many of these incidents took place – it commemorates those whose lives were lost and pays tribute to the courage and resilience of those who survived, as well as their families and loved ones.

The artwork, titled ‘Rise’, has been designed by lead designer John Nicholson of Urban Art Projects (UAP).

We hope you can join us as we officially unveil this monument of remembrance, diversity, inclusion, justice and healing.
