The first of its kind in Australia, the Honour Roll for Peace that stands at the gates to Addi Road is a public monument to those who have worked for peace, resisted war or fought against the causes of war for a more just and peaceful world. 

From activists and artists, all the way to former politicians and soldiers the range and diversity of those celebrated for their contributions both big and small is inspiring and enduring.

We inaugurated the Honour Roll on the 16th of October 2016, on the centenary of Australia’s vote against conscription in the middle of World War One. It serves as an extension of the Living Museum program we run here on site at the Centre.

Community members are encouraged to nominate those they believe have made enduring contributions to peace – either locally or more broadly – by filling out our online nomination form.

As part of our commitment to social justice and the environment, Addi Road stands in solidarity with those in our local community who are working to make the world a better, greener, fairer place.

In addition to the programs we run directly and the heavily subsidised rent we provide for our tenant organisations on site we also regularly support community based campaigns that reflect the concerns and needs of the Inner West.

From the TAFE Community Alliance’s ‘stand up for TAFE’ campaign and Lock the Gate’s campaign against coal seam gas exploration on farmland, all the way to Fair Trade NSW, Stop WestCONnex, the Refugee Action Coalition, Rainbow Families and Save Marrickville – there are so many incredible groups that make our community the vibrant and diverse place that it is.
