The Regional Centre for Culture is launching an e-book, Love Letters to Dja Dja Wurrung Country at the Bendigo Writers Festival.

The book contains hundreds of love letters written by people from the local community celebrating their love for the country where they live and its vibrant communities.

Love Letters to Dja Dja Wurrung Country will be available for everyone to view for free.

Love Letters was the launch event for the year-long RCC program on Valentine’s Day this year.

Celebrations included specially commissioned sculpture, Heart, created by Felipe Reynolds and Dja Dja Wurrung traditional owner and artist Racquel Kerr.

Inspired by the rivers, country and mountains of Dja Dja Wurrung Country, the nine-metre by eight-metre inflatable sculpture was surrounded by the love letters written by locals.

The launch will be held at the Capital Theatre on Wednesday, August 8, at 6.30pm.
