Cultural Tourism Initiatives
Aligning with the strategies and themes identified within the Whole of Country plan, a new position has been created to develop a cultural hub at Forestec. The new position is titled as Cultural Hub Manager and the primary role will be to create a space for the development of a cultural exhibition and interpretation area.
We are currently planning and scoping what this area will look like and have engaged the services of Melbourne Museum Indigenous collections department to visit the site and provide us with advice and support to develop the area.
We will work with the museum to ensure the facility meets Australian Museum standards and guidelines. Complete security and protection measures will be in place, prior to the negotiation of having Gippsland materials held within the museum collections returned to assist in the development of the exhibition and interpretation area.
I will keep you all updated in the progress of this development in the future editions of the newsletter.
