Cultural Diversity Week 'Our journey, Our stories' calls on all Victorians to share the story of their cultural heritage and identity.
The week is a time to find out what you didn’t know before, and to discover that there is more that unites us than divides us.
You’re part of this journey, so what’s your story?
- Tell a story about one thing you own that shares a special memory from your past which symbolises your cultural heritage or identity.Is it one of your grandmother’s plates used to share jewelled rice at Iranian family dinners?Is it the rosary beads you inherited from your aunt of Bosnian heritage and Christian faith?Is it the mah-jong set given to you as birthday gift from your cousin with a Chinese background?
How to share your story:
- Log into Instagram or Facebook
- Post an image with a story of around 100 words that tells people why the thing captured in the image reminds you of your cultural heritage or identity
- Don’t forget to add the hashtag #myvicstory and tag @multiculturevic
Don't want to share online? You could also host a storytelling event at home, work, school or in your neighbourhood.
