Kingston will celebrate Cultural Diversity Week in 2019. The theme from the Victoria Multicultural Commission is "Proud to Belong: Your Generation, Your Stories" which reflects the pride Australians can all take in belonging to a multicultural society and focus on the story-telling aspect to inspire personal stories of belonging from Victorians both young and old.
For these reasons Kingston Council would like to invite community members to be part of our Cultural Diversity Week in 2019. If you are a community group, community centre, neighbourhood house or a school based in Kingston, be part of our journey in 2019. Get together to celebrate Kingston’s rich and diverse cultural heritage!
The City of Kingston is offering a small grant to run events during Cultural Diversity Week in 2019. Grants of up to $400 are available to assist the community to run events from 16 to 24 March 2019.
Applications will open on 15 October, and close on Friday 14 December 2018. Groups and community organisations that apply for a grant will be notified of the outcome of their applications by the end of January 2019.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Community Development team if you require further information, support or wish to discuss your application. We are available on 9581 4783 or 9581 4734.
We are looking forward to working with you to deliver a special Cultural Diversity Week this year!
