In November 2015, council applied and received funding through the Celebrating Multicultural Queensland Grants Program to deliver the Multicultural Conversations project.

The purpose of the project was to engage with the multicultural sector and community to develop a Multicultural Action Plan for our region.

The process was supported by community development principals that aimed to appreciate community capacity and leadership, raise ideas, support equitable access, foster community cohesion, increase awareness and appreciation of multiculturalism.

Fourteen partners including community centres, service providers, agencies, peak bodies, State and Federal Government were involved in the Multicultural Conversations project which was delivered over four phases.
During the engagement phase of the project we connected with a total of 672 people who represented the multicultural sector and a wide diversity of cultural backgrounds and situations.
