The Celebrating Multicultural Queensland grants program promotes Queensland’s multicultural identity, the benefits of multiculturalism, and equitable access to opportunities by people for diverse cultural backgrounds.
The currently opened funding round is for multicultural events and celebrations to be held within 2018 calendar year with funding provided for events that aim to:
• enhance appreciation and recognition of diverse cultures in Queensland
• promote community awareness about the benefits of multiculturalism
• foster positive interaction and cohesion across diverse cultural groups and the wider community
• facilitate increased understanding of cultural diversity and intercultural connections.
If you had submitted funding applications under the Celebrating Multicultural Queensland events funding round in the past, you may find that we have simplified the application form to make it even more user friendly this time round.
If your organisation and community group is planning an event in 2018 that aligns with the objectives of the Celebrating Multicultural Queensland grants program, I encourage you to consider this funding opportunity.
The 2017-18 Funding Information Paper for multicultural events, and information about how to submit a funding application are available here.
THE CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS IS TUESDAY, 29 AUGUST 2017.
LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
Assessment of funding applications is conducted through a merit process with funding allocated to events that best address funding criteria, and can demonstrate strong alignment with funding objectives and priorities.
