The City of Whittlesea has launched its 2012 Cultural Heritage Program.
This popular and successful program of events provides a fantastic opportunity to join together and celebrate our shared and special heritage.
Over a period of eight months, it offers events and activities that acknowledge the rich indigenous cultural heritage of the area, the unique natural heritage of the Plenty Valley, and the diverse histories and cultures which together reflect our development as a municipality and as a community.
Mayor Cr Stevan Kozmevski said he was proud to support such a fantastic program of events.
“The Cultural Heritage Program plays an important role in promoting awareness of our history and our heritage,” Cr Kozmevski said.
“It contributes to our sense of place and to our community and personal well-being, informs us about where we have come from and who we are.”
The booklet is produced by Council, with support from the Cultural Heritage Program Committee which includes Yarra Plenty Regional Library.
“It is through the support and hard work that this group offers that we are again able to present such a varied and program of events,” Cr Kozmevski said.
“I invite you to participate in the wonderful events on offer, to learn more and to truly appreciate the dynamic living culture and heritage of our municipality.”
