New Funding for Victoria’s Multicultural Organisations
Friday, 23rd August 2013 at 7:05 pm

More than 270 of Victoria’s multicultural community organisations will share over $700,000 worth of funding as recipients in the first round of the State Government’s Multicultural Festivals and Events Grants, it has been announced.  

The grants, funded through the Victorian Government’s Community Grants Program and delivered by the Victorian Multicultural Commission, will be used by recipient organisations to host community festivals and events this year.

Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Nicholas Kotsiras said the grants provided vital  funding  to  community organisations to celebrate and share their culture with the wider community.

He said events to be held would range from Women’s and Youth Association groups sharing in music, dance, fashion  and food, to major public festivals such as the Australian  Association for Indian Culture and Education’s Diwali – The Festival of Lights event, held in the Ballarat region.

“As one of the world’s most culturally diverse communities, Victoria is home to people from more than 200 countries who between them follow one of 135 different faiths.

“The Victorian Coalition Government  is a strong supporter of our multicultural  communities, and I encourage the community to share in the many cultural offerings  through the coming festivals and events,” Kotsiras said.

Applications for the second round of Multicultural Festivals and Events grants through the Victorian Multicultural Commission are now open.
