National Trust of Australia

New industry links have been forged with the WA branch of the National Trust of Australia. This pre-eminent, independent organisation is committed to promoting and conserving Western Australia's indigenous, natural and historic heritage. In 2012, CHE collaborated with the National Trust WA, supported through funding from the Australian Government’s Your Community Heritage Program, on the project 'Rivers of Emotion', which launched an innovative new web portal designed for Perth's community to share their experiences and feelings about Derbarl and Yerrigan and Djarlgarro Beelier/the Swan and Canning Rivers.

Find out more about the project, including videos of symposium speakers, here.

In May 2017, CHE collaborated with National Trust WA, the City of Perth, The Department of Aboriginal Affairs (WA) and Lotterywest to convene the public symposium 'Fanny Balbuk Yoreel: Life, Legacy and Emotions', and to produce of a series of Fanny Balbuk Yoreel Resources for school students from years 3–11 focusing on Indigenous histories, emotions, voices and legacies.
