The Hellenic Museum in Melbourne is set to benefit from Victorian Labor’s announcement that it will deliver a new $2.5 million Multicultural Museums Program if re-elected.
The announcement was confirmed by Victorian Tourism Minister, Steve Dimopoulos MP, on Wednesday night via Facebook.
Mr Dimopoulos said the proposed funding will go towards supporting the Hellenic Museum, as well as the Chinese Museum, Jewish Museum and Museo Italiano.
The new Multicultural Museums Program will also include $500,000 for multicultural communities to explore ways to establish new cultural Museums.
“We’re backing Victoria’s multicultural communities – not just with words, but with action,” Mr Dimopoulos said about the election pledge.
“It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what you look like, what you believe or what language you speak – in Victoria, we’re proud of our cultural diversity.”
This announcement comes as on Wednesday the Victorian Liberal’s committed $4 million over four years to help Victoria’s multicultural communities acquire cultural heritage objects, initially targeting Greek, Italian, Chinese and Indian projects.
