TO DEFINE, RECORD, PROTECT AND PROMOTE MIGRANT HERITAGE IN WOLLONGONG AND THE ILLAWARRA
The Migration Heritage Project is a community initiative designed to protect and promote the heritage of Illawarra's diverse cultural communities. The project aims to achieve this goal by linking with a wide range of communities, talking about the importance of protecting our heritage and providing the resources that groups and individuals need to record and celebrate their heritage.
MHP is an independent group, not aligned to any government or business interests, with strong support from the wider community. Our representatives come from cultural organisations and clubs, from local and state government, from service providers and from the University of Wollongong. Membership of MHP is open, however you do not need to be a member of our group to be involved in our work. We received funding from the IMB Community Foundation in 2002 and in-kind support from Wollongong City Council & the University of Wollongong as well as funding and support from the Migration Heritage Centre NSW.
