Curious Conversations

A series of public lectures exploring multiculturalism and how it could look at the end of the decade.

The Victorian Multicultural Commission is excited to bring you a new series of public lectures to explore the Cultural Diversity Week theme, “What does multicultural Victoria look like in 2030?”

The series will cover topics ranging from the benefits and opportunities that our cultural, linguistic and religious diversity provides to issues identified by communities, such as employment, racism, mental health and family violence. 

Join our diverse panel to discuss what multicultural Victoria looks like now, what it should look like in 2030 and what needs to be done to get there.
