New South Wales Liberal Coalition Pledges $100,000 for Armenian-Australian Archives Project


Three Australian politicians from New South Wales who are supporting the Armenian archives project

The New South Wales Liberal and National Government has pledged $100,000 to the Armenian-Australian community in support of the establishment of the Armenian-Australian Archives Project, a proposal by the Armenian National Committee of Australia in partnership with Galstaun College.


With the New South Wales state election scheduled to take place on March 25, 2023, the Armenian National Committee of Australia (ANC-AU) National Office has conducted meetings with incumbents and candidates in Armenian-Australian populated electorates.


These meetings have helped secure widespread support for Federal Government recognition of the Armenian Genocide, the right to self-determination of the people of Artsakh and support for the Armenian-Australian community organizations and structures, including this special funding commitment to bring to life the Armenian-Australian Archives Project.


The Armenian-Australian Archives Project aims to research, preserve and promote the social, cultural, historical and economic contributions Armenians have made in New South Wales in both public and private life, and educate and share the Armenian-Australian story to enrich the understanding of the community.


The ANC-AU National Office has reached out to NSW Labor to match this commitment ahead of the polls on Saturday 25 March 2023. The community’s peak public affairs body will release an election report guide in the coming days highlighting the commitments of individual candidates and parties in key Armenian populated electorates.
