As part of Artlands 2018, Multicultural Arts Victoria’s Emerge Cultural Hub (Bendigo) will be presenting 2 sessions at The Engine Room on 12 Oct 2018.
The Emerge Cultural Hub in Bendigo is part of Multicultural Arts Victoria’s Emerge Cultural Network that operates within a Community Cultural Development framework. It aims to increase opportunities for emerging & refugee communities to participate in and control their own cultural development.
The Emerge program endeavours to add a diverse voice to the arts and cultural landscape in Bendigo through creating intercultural arts experiences, increasing participation and opportunities by and for artists and community members from former refugee and Indigenous backgrounds.
Hear EMERGE Ambassadors do short presentations about their projects or pitch an idea they want feedback on.
