Supporting Victoria’s multicultural heritage

·

A Matt Guy Liberals and Nationals Government will commit $4 million over four years to help Victoria’s multicultural communities acquire cultural heritage objects, initially targeting Greek, Italian, Chinese and Indian projects.

This newly created fund will aim to enhance existing infrastructure symbolic of a community’s heritage and widely recognised by the broader Victorian community.

The fund will also support projects that aim to establish heritage projects that serve the needs of the ethnic-specific community and have a wider use and appeal to Victorians.

Under the Liberals and Nationals’ plan, we’ll also establish a new ‘culture-specific’ Museum Grants Program to support existing culture-specific museums and institutions, as well as the establishment of new ones.

Leader of the Liberal Party, Matt Guy, said the Liberals and Nationals recognise the vital role that multicultural communities play.

“Victoria is a proudly diverse and multicultural state with a rich heritage to celebrate. This commitment will help build stronger connections and communities across Victoria.”
