Multicultural Arts Victoria in partnership with Melbourne Festival present Igniting Imagination 2018. Now in its 7th year, this project builds dynamic new bonds with the city’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities, and brings exceptional artistic talent form Australia’s emerging, Indigenous and refugee communities to the stage.
In 2018, Igniting Imagination encompasses a range of Festival Ambassadors and for the third time a special closing event, Our Place, Our Home.
The 2018 Festival Ambassadors are Brandon Lee, Carolina Cordeiro, Janette Hoe, Leona Kakima and Puya Mehman Pazir. These ambassadors are leaders in their artistic practice and represent the changing face of diversity in the arts.

“The Ambassador program is a wonderful way to unite with our local and international artists, hear and see new ideas, and develop connections with fellow ambassadors and our respective communities.”
