CALL FOR | 2017 National Trust Heritage Festival ‘Having a Voice’

Thursday, 29 September 2016

Key Dates:

National Festival dates:  18 April – 18 May 2017

A call for WA communities, local government and organisations to start planning events for the 2017 National Heritage Month which will commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Aboriginal Referendum.

It’s time to put your thinking caps on for events in the 2017
National Trust Heritage Festival!

2017’s theme is ‘Having a Voice’. This was initiated to
commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Aboriginal Referendum
and it’s about retelling history from a different perspective. The
theme looks at our heritage, inclusive of all nationalities and of
course from an Aboriginal voice. The theme also can delve into
women’s history – it’s about unheard stories and giving
empowerment, a voice, a new narrator.

The Festival will be held all around Australia, starting on 18
April 2017 (International Day of Monuments and Sites) and runs for
one month until 18 May 2017 (International Museum Day).

The Festival is a great opportunity for communities, local
government and organisations to allow the voices of their
community, culture and people to be heard not only locally but at a
national level.

More information about the Festival (including
registration details) will be on t
he National Trust of
Western Australia
website early October.
