The Project Heroes Plan
Project Heroes is a non-profit exhibition celebrating the lives of the Canadian soldiers who died in Afghanistan. The exhibition gives insight to the many lives touched by war; the soldiers, their families, the wounded in body and spirit, and the Afghan people. The human aspect of this war is presented in context with Canada’s role in the global conflicts and peacekeeping of the past 100 years leading up to the war in Afghanistan. This exhibition was done in cooperation with the soldiers’ families.
The project co-ordinators needed a website that would provide background to support the portrait exhibitions and background on why Project Heroes was initiated .
They hoped to not only give context to the project, but looked to provide a searchable database of soldier profiles, commemorating their service to our country and remembering their lives.
