The Parchment of Lingering Voices

The Pachment of Lingering Voices is a project to amplify and celebrate the importance of women in our lives.

We are asking the community to contribute words of thanks to a woman who has inspired you. Your words will be added to a community scroll, a digital copy of which will be kept by The City of Greater Dandenong, as an enduring reminder of the important role that women play in both our personal, and public lives.

This project is supported by Council’s annual Walk against Family Violence. The Parchment of Lingering Voices is designed to focus on the promotion of healthy relationships and gender equality and amplify the vibrant relationships that people in the City of Greater Dandenong have with the women in their lives, while acknowledging the important role women play in shaping the municipality.

At the conclusion of the project a short report will be written for the City of Greater Dandenong which will use the postcards and letters that you have submitted to inform its discussion. Participation in this project is voluntary and you can contact the project leader – Clare McCracken to remove your contribution from the scroll at any time. Clare's email is
