Do you work for or volunteer at a local council, community group, non-government organisation or P&C Association? Are you planning a multicultural event for 2019?
If you answered ‘yes’ to both then your organisation might be eligible to apply for an event grant under the 2018-19 Celebrating Multicultural Queensland (CMQ) program.
The CMQ program promotes multiculturalism and supports communities to celebrate diversity and connect and welcome migrants and refugees into a wide range of community activities.
A total of $1.4 million is available for established and new events, with funding of up to $20,000 available per event.
Funding is for multicultural events being held in 2019 that aim to:
- Welcome migrants and refugees into communities, and to increase their sense of belonging
- Promote an increased understanding and acceptance of a particular, or an emerging culture across the wider community
- Celebrate, promote and increase opportunities for intercultural connections within local communities and across Queensland.
APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON FRIDAY 14 SEPTEMBER 2018.
