Applications are closing soon for the 2017-18 Celebrating Multicultural Queensland Events Grants.
If you are a not‑for‑profit or charitable organisation and are planning to host an event in 2018 that will celebrate and promote intercultural connections, you have until 29 August 2017 to apply for the grant.
Cultural events eligible for this grant should seek, through planning and delivery of diverse cultural and multicultural events, community groups, local councils and non-government organisations, to develop practical strategies to:
- enhance appreciation and recognition of diverse cultures in Queensland
- promote community awareness about the benefits of multiculturalism
- foster positive interaction and cohesion across diverse cultural groups and the wider community
- facilitate increased understanding and intercultural connections between diverse cultural groups.
This is a great opportunity for multicultural events that align with the objectives of the Celebrating Multicultural Queensland grants program to get off the ground.
