We know your name, but not your story


A new initiative has uncovered the untold stories of Corangamite.

In 2017, Council coordinated the We Know Your Name But Not Your Story project, in partnership with local health services, Corangamite Shire Youth Council and Humankind Enterprises.  
Council received $46,000 in funding from VicHealth as part of the Bright Futures for Young Victorians Challenge and the partnership developed an exciting project to build resilience in local young people.

A survey conducted in Corangamite Shire in May 2016 showed that one quarter of the 335 young people surveyed felt dissatisfied with their connection to their community.

The theme of ‘community connection’ was explored with the Youth Council and key leaders in the local community who designed the project which used story telling as a vehicle for increasing community connectedness.

The project concluded in November 2017 and the videos can be found here:
