Multicultural Arts Victoria and Gandel Philanthropy presents the 2018 EMERGE BIG GATHERING.
Since its inception in 2004, Multicultural Art’s Victoria’s Emerge program has cultivated strong relationships with community members, artists and cultural leaders, many of whom have contributed significantly to the success of the program over its 12 years.
Emerge is a unique initiative that celebrates and acknowledges newly arrived, emerging culturally diverse and Indigenous artists and communities in their local areas, and provides tangible opportunities for cross cultural sharing, celebration and connection with the wider community.
Through our Emerge Cultural Ambassadors program, Multicultural Arts Victoria (MAV) would like to formally acknowledge some of the people who have unconditionally supported community, diversity and the arts in their local areas. This opportunity will be offered to a selected group of up to 10 people from three Emerge municipalities (Whittlesea, Wyndham, Shepparton) for one year.
Multicultural Arts Victoria and Gandel Philanthropy will acknowledge the 2018 Emerge Cultural Ambassadors at the 2018 Emerge Big Gathering. The Emerge Cultural Ambassador will have unique opportunities to participate in our events and programs, to develop networks and skills, and to gain recognition and visibility through our media contacts and publicity platforms.
