It's Cultural Diversity Week!

Victoria's 10th Cultural Diversity Week will run from 17 to 25 March 2012. 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. 

Throughout the week, a host of vibrant public events will showcase Victoria’s rich diversity through film, cuisine, sports, forums, cultural performances, arts and crafts, and many other cultural delights. This is a great time to support community harmony, celebrate our rich cultural diversity and to promote mutual understanding and respect.

Visit the Victorian Multicultural Commission website to find out more about the events happening during the week, including the Viva Victoria Festival on 25 March at Federation Square.


Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing acknowledges and pays respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, on whose land this website was developed. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their ancestors and elders, both past and present and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We hope our work contributes to the wider project of respect and recognition between cultures in Australia. Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing receives project funding from the Australian Department of Health to administer the Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) program in Victoria.
