Cultural Diversity Week is a time to come together as a community to celebrate our multicultural journey and to share personal stories of our cultural heritage and identity.
There are many ways to get involved and connect with us through the theme – ‘Our journey, Our stories’.
Become a storyteller online or at your own event. Tell your friends, family and colleagues about the week. Join us at an event and celebrate your cultural heritage and our multicultural state.
Find out what you didn’t know before and discover that there is more that unites us than divides us.
