Thirty years on from the Ash Wednesday bushfires, the Victorian government is inviting people to share their memories and stories of recovery. The stories will feature in CV’s Land and Ecology collection, in recognition of this important part of Victoria’s history.
Over the next twelve months selected stories and short films will be published on the Ash Wednesday 30 – Commemorative Story Collection pages.
We are asking for stories grouped around a number of different themes:
Stories about individuals, families, communities and organisations:
- How have individuals, families, communities and organisations recovered in the 30 years since the fires?
- What challenges to recovery have you faced and how have you worked to overcome them?
Stories about the landscape:
- Tell us about the regeneration of the landscape, buildings and places in the 30 years since the fires?
- How have landscapes , buildings or places been significant to your survival and recovery since the Ash Wednesday bushfires?
For more information about how to share your story visit CV’s Ash Wednesday 30 – Commemorative Story Collection pages.
