City of Moonee Valley Recognition Plaque Project

MV plaque
July 13, 2016

In December 2015 the City of Moonee Valley made an ongoing commitment to respect, recognise and build relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples more visible with the installation of new recognition plaques.

These beautiful plaques are now displayed on over 40 Council buildings including the Civic Centre, Transfer Station, libraries, community centres and leisure centres.

They proudly acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional custodians of the land now known as Moonee Valley, and pay respect to Wurundjeri elders past and present. The artwork titled ‘The Myth of the Rainbow’ by Wurundjeri artist Judy Nicholson was commissioned especially for the project.

The Council is also encouraging local businesses and the community to follow by displaying the acknowledgement on their own premises.

If you’re interested in displaying a recognition sticker, please contact the Social Planning and Wellbeing team on 9243 8888 or email community@mvcc.vic.gov.au
