Promoting and Preserving the Anatolian Culture and Heritage…
We are a community-based, non-profit organisation that was originally founded in 1979 under the name of Victorian Turkish Workers Association. In 1997, it took on its current name, The Anatolian Cultural Centre. With a focus on enriching the culture that is uniquely ours, we encourage active participation in our local community in promoting and preserving the Anatolian culture and language.
Facilitated by a 5-member management committee, events and activities are organised yearly in Victoria, as well as in other Australian cities. Our objective is to help address the social and cultural needs of the Anatolian and Turkish Australian communities, looking after the welfare of the migrant workers, as well as to help them integrate into this multi-cultural society better.
The management committee is elected every year at the Annual General Meeting, comprising 2 co-presidents, a secretary, a treasurer, 1 member and 2 reserve members.
The ACC Constitution presents in detail the fundamental ideologies, aspirations and general structure of the Anatolian Cultural Centre.
