To define, record, protect and promote migrant heritage in the Illawarra

The Migration Heritage Project is a community initiative that advocates to protect, promote and celebrate the diverse heritage of Illawarra’s community.

We do this by collaborating with a wide range of cultural and heritage groups, raising the importance of protecting our heritage with Local and State government and providing resources for groups and individuals to record and celebrate their heritage.
