Boort Cultural and Environmental Interpretative Centre and Landscape Master Plan (2010)
The purpose of the study is to prepare an initial concept plan and preliminary feasibility in support of a Boort Cultural and Environmental Interpretative Centre as part of a funding application by the Boort Dja Dja Wurrung Clan for the development of the Environmental and Interpretative Centre at Little Lake Boort. The Boort Cultural and Environmental Centre is proposed to be a sanctuary and place of remembrance for the life and culture of the Boort Dja Dja Wurrung Clan, and to reflect and communicate this history and legacy to new generations of Australians and other visitors.
- to develop a long term management strategy that involves the whole town in both celebrating and integrating the master plan within the physical development of the site;
- to develop a site response that integrates the site emphatically into the structure of the town and invests the physical structure of the town with a heightened sense of individuality, character and meaning derived from the lake and its narrative of aboriginality;
- to develop a multi-purpose building that celebrates understanding of aboriginality and culture through display, identification and articulation of thems tied to the surrounding landscape, settlement and a celebration of the community of Boort and the broader theme of pluralism and reconcilation in Australia.
