Description

CURRENT POSITION 2016 August - Deputy Chairperson of the Board of Management

The Koorie Heritage Trust was established in 1985 with a commitment to protect, preserve and promote the living culture of the Indigenous people of south-east Australia. Today the Trust boasts extensive collections of artefacts, paintings, photographs, oral history recordings and library materials. Through museum-standard storage, documentation and conservation, we seek to protect and preserve the collection for future generations. We also use the collection to promote Koorie Aboriginal culture through an active exhibition program. The Centre's motto is Gnokan Danna Murra Kor-Ki (Give me your hand my friend) and Bridge the Cultural Gap.
