Discover Heritage: Unravel your local stories

Jurisdiction: New South Wales

Ignite a passion for heritage and bridge the gap between people and their cultural roots. How can the community discover the untold stories of their local heritage and understand its universal value. How can we create lasting impact by preserving traditions, building community bonds, and boosting local economies through heritage tourism.

Heritage holds the untold stories of our cultural roots, helping to shape our identities and give us a sense of wellbeing and belonging to a wider community. We aim to ignite a passion for heritage, bridging the gap between people and their past. We want inventive ways that we can empower communities to discover and preserve heritage and their local narratives.

Understanding heritage's universal value is key. By celebrating its role in enriching lives, we forge a profound connection with our collective past. Preserving traditions is essential, and collaborative efforts, education, and intergenerational exchanges keep these legacies alive.

Heritage strengthens community bonds, fostering stewardship. Through cultural celebrations and inclusive initiatives, we create spaces for dialogue and cooperation. Heritage tourism offers economic opportunities for locals, supporting sustainable development through authentic experiences.

How can we unleash the transformative power of heritage by fostering critical awareness across NSW and getting people to cherish their local heritage items?
