Australian identity is an important part of World youth Day, where you come from is part of how you participate and how people engage with you. It is great fun finding out where people come from and it is no secret that most of the world has a soft spot for us Aussies. So identifying as part of the group and to the rest of the world needs some  thought.

There are two national initiatives by the Australian WYD Committee that boasts Australian identity during our WYD pilgrimages. Firstly the Aussie pilgrim T-shirt and secondly the Australian Gathering during the WYD week where Australian gather to share their pilgrimage stories and the celebrate being Australian in the midst of the universal Catholic church.

WYD2016 Pilgim Tshirt Design Brief2
Australian pilgrim’s national identity is an important part of every World Youth Day pilgrimage. The pilgrim T-shirt is at the centre of this visual identity. Each Aussie pilgrim will receive a t-shirt as part of their pilgrimage experience and it will be proudly worn across Europe and become a treasured memory of the event, worn back home. The shirt is a gift from the WYD Committee to pilgrims to help support and identify the Australian pilgrims at World Youth Day.
