Cultural Diversity Week - 15 to 23 March 2014
The next Cultural Diversity Week will run from 15 to 23 March 2014.
The ever popular Premier's Gala Dinner will kick off Cultural Diversity Week at Crown Palladium on Saturday 15 March 2014.
To mark the end of the week, tens of thousands of people will gather at Federation Square in Melbourne on Sunday 23 March 2014 for the spectacular Viva Victoria Festival.
Cultural Diversity Week is an opportunity for Victorians to come together to share aspects of their culture, faith and language, and celebrate the benefits multiculturalism brings to our state.
All Victorians are encouraged to participate in an established event, or to organise their own activity to mark the week. Communities, organisations and schools who are hosting activities can register their events with the VMC. Click on the links below for more information.
We can offer your organisation the opportunity to engage with a diverse audience, and to align your brand with an established, successful and exciting program of events celebrating community harmony and multiculturalism.more>
