Multicultural Victoria in 2030
Multiculturalism is a core part of the Victorian identity, our character and way of life. As home to people from all corners of the world, Victoria is a place where anyone can contribute and belong.
This year’s Cultural Diversity Week theme pushes the boundaries and asks: What does multicultural Victoria look like in 2030?
Through a hybrid offering of in-person and digital events, we’ll invite participants to ask the big questions, spark constructive conversations and envision the future of Victorian multiculturalism.
What will Cultural Diversity Week look like in 2021?
Sharing culture through food, music and conversation is a cherished pastime for Victorians. Even with the challenges presented by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, traditional multicultural and multifaith celebrations were adapted to ensure the health and safety of all Victorians.
We remain committed to celebrating and enjoying Cultural Diversity Week from 21-28 March in a way that is COVIDSafe and accessible for all.
