3ZZZ is proud to announce that we have been awarded a 2023 Community Heritage Grant.

The Community Heritage Grants program provides non-profit community organisations with funding to assist with the preservation of locally owned, but nationally significant collections. The grants also aim to make these collections more publicly accessible.

This grant is going to be used to undertake a significance assessment to determine the significance of 3ZZZ’s cultural and heritage objects, dating back to the ethnic media radio movement in the 1970s.

Community Heritage Grants are funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts (Office for the Arts); National Library of Australia; the National Archives of Australia; the National Film and Sound Archive and the National Museum of Australia.

3ZZZ is grateful to the National Library of Australia for its support of the station’s work to preserve and share ethnic media and Melbourne’s vibrant cultural heritage.

59 community-led organisations have received a 2023 Community Heritage Grant including Australian Red Cross Heritage Archives, Woolmers Foundation, Broken Hill Historical Society, Australian Sugar Industry Museum, The Ration Shed Museum, Buda Historic Home & Garden, the Callaway Centre and many others.
