Celebrating the Success of the Mallee Living Histories: A Day to Remember at Princes Court

At Princes Court, we believe in the power of community and the magic of storytelling. On Thursday, September 7th, 2023, we came together to celebrate a remarkable milestone – the success of the Mallee Living Histories and the launch of its digital online platform It was a day filled with joy, inspiration, and the warm embrace of friends, families, storytellers, and writers who have made this possible.

The Mallee Living Histories is a labour of love, an initiative that beautifully intertwines the rich history, culture, and stories of the Mallee region. Over the years, this has blossomed into a tribute to the unique essence of this land and its people. It’s a testament to the profound impact that storytelling can have on preserving our heritage and fostering a sense of belonging.

The heart of the celebration was Vernon Knight and the storytellers – the true heroes behind the Mallee Living Histories. Their words have ignited our imaginations and connected us to the Mallee region’s past, present, and future. Their passion and dedication to preserving our cultural heritage are truly inspiring.

The celebration at Princes Court Village was nothing short of magical, thanks to Carrie Chappell Acting CEO of Princes Court, who arranged the event to be held at the Village. Our guests gathered to commemorate the project’s incredible achievements. Laughter filled the air as we shared stories, memories, and the anticipation of new adventures through the digital platform.

The launch of the digital online platform marked a new chapter in the Mallee Living Histories journey. Now, anyone, anywhere can access and explore the captivating stories and experiences that make the Mallee region so special. It’s a bridge that connects generations, fosters understanding, and ensures that these stories will continue to be cherished for years to come.

We are immensely proud to have been a part of this celebration, and we extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed to the Mallee Living Histories success. Together, we’ve created something truly remarkable, and we’re excited to see the project continue to thrive in the digital world.
