Successful integration of newly arrived people from diverse cultural communities is critical to ensuring harmony and a mutually respectful cohesive society. Australia’s immigrant and refugee communities include incredible artistic talent – people from rich cultural backgrounds with much to offer our landscape, their new homeland. We are focussed on helping overcome the significant barriers that inhibit their participation in our community.
”As a source of exchange, innovation and creativity, cultural diversity is as necessary for humankind as biodiversity is for nature.” – UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions 2005.
What is your cultural narrative?
“…cultural diversity creates a rich and varied world, which increases the range of choices and nurtures human capacities and values, and therefore is a mainspring for sustainable development for communities, peoples and nations.” – UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions 2005.
We believe … the wealth of our society is the diversity of its people.
