My layered illustrations were used in a recent animation released by The Australian Republic Movement which is part of a new online campaign to give young Australians a say in their future.
The ARM press release said:
“A national vote on the republic is likely within three years and the views of first-time voters will be decisive.
Hundreds of thousands of Aussies who turn eighteen later in 2019, or in 2021 and 2022, could cast their first vote ever in a national vote on the Republic.
Young Australians already tell us they are more likely to support moving to an Australian republic than to support keeping the British monarchy.”
For the maturity of our nation but more importantly, for a clearer path towards reconciliation with our First Australians lets hope the ARM is right!
