 In canoes and caravans,
on surfboards and on subways,
by stars and satellites,
we have journeyed across this wide brown land.


THE TASMANIAN NATIONAL TRUST HERITAGE FESTIVAL – 2014

The Tasmanian National Trust respectfully acknowledges the past and present traditional owners of this land.

The Tasmanian National Trust Heritage Festival 2014 is shaping up to be the most exciting and energetic program to date. Themed ‘Journeys’, there are over 200 registered events from museums, organisations and businesses.
From a pub quiz night to a growing journey – the plants of Port Arthur, to talks, discussions, debates and sculptures in historic houses.
This year the National Trust of Tasmania is hosting six signature events:


THE WELCOME PROJECT
This ‘welcome project’ proposed for Kings Park in Launceston will honor all those who have migrated from countries around the world to live in Tasmania. The Tasmanian National trust has partnered with the Launceston City Council and the University Of Tasmania School Of Design, Furniture and landscaping to collaborate, design and deliver this project.
Kings Park, in Launceston has been selected due to its proximity to the water, existing pathways and planned commemorative park project. The integration of the ‘welcome project’ will complement and enhance this area providing a ‘journey’ for pedestrians to follow.
Immigrants have played a significant role in the development of Tasmania. Our history has been forged by the contributions of many countries, our culture and society today is a direct reflection of the blending and incorporation into society of these individuals and their contributions both physical and social that they have made and are still making.
The Launch of the expressions of interest from designers for the delivery of the concept will be held on Friday 23rd May at Kings Park at 11.00am.
All welcome
