The 2018 Canberra and Region Heritage Festival will be 16 days of celebration for the region's Aboriginal, historic and natural heritage.
This year's theme 'My Culture, My Story' will explore, celebrate, share and preserve our cultural heritage. In 2018 we will be focusing on what makes a place special, encouraging us all to embrace the future by sharing the strength of our cultural identities. Highly distinctive cultural expressions that have been passed from one generation to another and that have evolved in response to their environment, give us a sense of identity and continuity. Through learning about our own identity we are better able to respect each other resulting in a more inclusive society.
So tell us your stories and celebrate intangible cultural expressions of dance, costume, music, poetry, storytelling, traditional games and handicrafts. By doing so we are helping keep them alive and relevant for all generations.
