Stolen Generations Marker Project - external working group

Hume City Council recognises the rich Aboriginal heritage within the municipality and acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung, which includes the Gunung Willam Balluk clan, as the Traditional Custodians of this land. Council embraces Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander living cultures as a vital part of Australia’s identity and recognises, celebrates and pays respect to the existing family members of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and to Elders past, present and future.

This engagement page will support the Stolen Generations Marker Working Group (SGMWG) to guide Hume City Council along the journey that we have ahead. This site will:

  • Enable Officers to share key information;
  • Allow members to make key suggestions for the project; and
  • Allow members to provide feedback on project priorities/tasks.

The working group has met 8 times since April and their work has covered:

  • Developing site and location principles;
  • Assessing potential marker sites;
  • Providing advice on the future Artist Brief and EOI process;
  • Providing guidance on the best approaches for engaging with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community;
  • Creating linkages to relevant organisations and community members; and
  • Providing guidance to Council Officers on the connection between the Stolen Generations Marker project and broader truth-telling processes.

The location and design of the Stolen Generations Marker will be determined through a community consultation process that is guided by the working group.
