You are invited to attend a Ballarat Arts community consultation session with Multicultural Arts Victoria on Tuesday 28th August from 6pm – 8pm at the Ballarat Town Hall.
MAV will be seeking community feedback on the following:
1. What are the barriers to participation in the arts for refugee and emerging CALD artists and communities in Ballarat?
2. What can we do to increase opportunities and access for refugee and emerging CALD artists and communities in Ballarat?
Multicultural Arts Victoria will undertake a series of 6 consultations over a 2 week period in August to review and inform the development of its Emerge Cultural Hubs program. Emerge Cultural Hubs is a unique model for arts development, programming and capacity building of emerging refugee artists and communities in regional Victoria. Through a partnership approach and ongoing consultation with communities and stakeholders, the program identifies local needs and develops locally based, sustainable arts initiatives that are aimed at increasing refugee and CALD communities’ participation in the arts.
