This Home: Whittlesea immigration project

This Home : tracing the waves of immigration to Whittlesea through images, words and dance is a project about the history of immigration to Whittlesea, told by residents with diverse backgrounds. It recounts the pre and post immigration journeys undertaken by the particpants, and aims to reveal the rewards and challenges of finding and making a new home in Australia. These stories were told through a combination of dance, photographs and written biographies. The booklet produced from the project is now available in the local history collection at Mill Park Library.
