ASPIRE’S VISION LEADS DELEGATION TO CANBERRA

In the next step towards its vision of building Australia’s first interfaith precinct, The Aspire Cultural and Charitable Foundation will meet with key government ministers in Canberra early next week to discuss its application for the Federal Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund (NSRF).

Foundation CEO Margaret O’Rourke said the Aspire Precinct will be a significant piece of physical, cultural and social infrastructure for Bendigo, and she and Board member Cameron Fraser were looking forward to speaking with Ministers from across the political spectrum next week.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to present the project to Senators Fiona Nash (Regional Development) and Richard Colbeck (Tourism and International Education), as well Deputy Prime Minister Baranaby Joyce and the Shadow Attorney General Mark Dreyfus,” she said. “We are also excited about explaining the detail of the project to the Shadow Minister for Citizenship and Mutilculturalism, Michelle Rowland, and Julie Collins, the Shadow Minister for Regional Development.”
