We are dedicated to telling the inspiring stories of Australian-Lebanese in Victoria through writings, photography, film, paintings, cultural events and exhibitions.
Some of these stories focus on the past, some on the present. All are recorded for future generations.
Each story invokes the journey of the Australian-Lebanese, from their arrival in the late 1800s to the present. These stories speak of the joys, struggles, humour and courage of families, individuals, businesses, churches, mosques, schools, cultural organisations and communities.
Funding was obtained from the Victorian Multicultural Commission in 2005 to establish The Australian Lebanese Historical Society of Victoria. ALHSV was incorporated on July 7 2005 and formally launched at the Royal Historical Society of Victoria, Melbourne, on 4 October 2006.
We welcome as members all who have an interest in the ALHSV goals and activities.
The ALHSV is run by a Council with elections held bi-annually.
