The goal of the MHP is to ensure that the rich and significant stories of people who migrated to the Illawarra from a wide diversity of backgrounds are researched, recorded and showcased in the community.
Ideally this would be achieved with the construction of a Museum of Human Migration. To realise this vision will require significant collaboration across government and philanthropic organisations with the outcome being of great significance to the local community and wider Australia. Go to feasibility study for a full report on this concept.
In order to work towards a permanent museum presence, the MHP will continue linking with community groups and engaging people in workshops to research, protect and promote our rich cultural heritage.
The MHP have produced resources to help people to get started. These include a brochure called “Documenting the Migration Heritage of the Illawarra”, as well as an information package and other tools. Go to the resources page for further details.
