* Cultural Diversity Week 2020 *
Cultural Diversity Week is Victoria's largest multicultural celebration featuring an exciting program of festivals and events across metropolitan and regional areas. Proudly presented by the Victorian Multicultural Commission with support from the Victorian Government the Week invites Victorians to embrace and celebrate our cultural diversity. In 2020, Cultural Diversity Week will be held from 21 - 29 March with the theme ‘Curiosity. Conversation. Community.' We invite you to join the conversation, attend one of our events or host your own. What's On Curiosity. Conversation. Community. We're bringing people together to not only celebrate Victoria's diversity, but to also spark their curiosity about culture and about each other. Join us as we lead a conversation about multiculturalism, what it means in 2020 and showcase how it strengthens our community. Victoria's Multicultural Festival Join us for Victoria's Multicultural Festival on Sunday 29 March 2020 at Queen Victoria Market. Our soon to be announced program will include cultural performances across multiple stages, dance workshops, a cinema, kids' activities and endless opportunities to explore the many cultures and traditions that make our state such an incredible place to live. Multicultural Film Festival An annual short film festival that explores diversity and multiculturalism through films that make us think and touch our hearts. Film has a unique capacity to connect audiences to other points of view. Though we may have different backgrounds, when we immerse ourselves in stories of cultural heritage and identity, it's easy to see that there is more that unites us than divides us. The Multicultural Film Festival (formerly the VMC Film Festival) showcases short films that explore stories of diversity and inclusion. Each year, our shortlisted films feature characters who are encountering new ways of life, struggling with feeling isolated in a new country or within their cultures' traditions, or beginning to embrace and celebrate their difference. Ranging from gentle childhood fables to more stridently political works, all are strong examples of the power of storytelling in creating dialogue and initiating understanding.
