Consultation has concluded

Since June this year, Maribyrnong Council has been in the process of becoming a member of the Intercultural Cities Programme, and we want your input!

This is part of an international initiative to embrace cultural diversity and to do so in ways that advance innovation, social cohesion and productivity.

Interculturalism is important to us

Maribyrnong is proud of our cultural diversity. We have one of the most ethnically diverse populations in Victoria with our residents coming from more than 135 countries and speaking over 80 different languages.

We're committed to leading the way in how we manage our rich social fabric, and we see interculturalism as our next step to do so.

We want your say

Share your ideas below on what you think will bring cultures together in the City of Maribyrnong. Whether it's a harmony festival, an ambassadors program or a new cultural centre - we want to hear it.

Your ideas will contribute with feedback from local service providers and the Intercultural Cities Programme to develop Council's first Intercultural Strategy for 2018-21.
