Some help to save history
COMMUNITY groups across the Murray Plains electorate are being encouraged to apply for a share in $350,000 funding for projects that preserve and share stories from our past.
Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh said this latest round of grants of up to $15,000 is available through the Public Record Office’s Local History Grants Program.
“These grants provide greater accessibility to Victoria’s history and aim to support a range of projects that share our history in innovative and engaging ways,” he said.
Projects supported in the past through the Local History grants include the digitisation and preservation of newspapers, virtual exhibitions and websites, filmmaking and playwriting, historical walks and restoration of historical costumes.
