SOUTH AUSTRALIA IS FAST BECOMING A GLOBAL DESTINATION FOR INNOVATION BUT ITS NOT JUST THE TECH HUBS LEADING THE WAY.
The South Australian Government’s Growth State agenda is stimulating a new era in innovation, productivity and growth, placing South Australia as a globally recognised destination for the Hi-Tech sector. Innovation precincts such as Lot Fourteen and the Tonsley District are not the only destinations for innovation and you just need to visit a SA cemetery to see why.
Earlier this year the first “Smart Memorial Plaque” was installed at Enfield Memorial Park and since then we continue to see a growing demand for innovative memorialisation options within the progressive cemetery setting.
Centennial Parks Janine Edmunds explains why.
“With the reliance on technology, including the connection through social networks, it made perfect sense to offer digital memorials. Everybody grieves differently and we are finding that the Smart Memorial Plaques “SMP” are playing their part in the healing. Our relationship with a person alters when that person dies, but the relationship doesn’t end. Memories allow the relationship to continue, providing comfort and helping families and friends adapt.
A growing number of families at Centennial Park have embraced the benefit of being able to share their loved one’s life story with family and friends not only who live in Adelaide, but those living interstate or in other parts of the world. Particularly during Covid restrictions and border closures; the loss of a loved one is even more difficult, and when you can’t mourn and be surrounded by friends and family, the effect is unimaginable. The Arrow Bronze “SMP” by ModUrn provides them with comfort and connectivity with no limitations of distance, location or time and helps to improve visitor engagement at Centennial Park, not only by allowing families to share and remember a life story, but also to enhance historical and public profile personalities within our stunning 40 hectare Park”.
Arrow Bronze is proud to support our customers and families with the latest innovative memorial products and to fulfil our promise of Living Memories.
