    The Victorian Multicultural Commission will review the expressions of interest received and allocate tickets to support inclusive representation across interested community organisations, the general public, businesses or private organisations, local councils, federal or state government departments.

    This approach supports an event with guests from many cultural backgrounds as a true reflection of our multicultural state.
