2018-19 Celebrating Multicultural Queensland Program

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. 

For more information and to access the application form, please visit the website or email Multicultural Affairs Queensland. 


Appointment as Shadow Minister

It is an honour to be appointed as Shadow Minister for Young Australians and Youth Affairs, and Shadow Minister for Employment Services, Workforce Participation and Future of Work.
Young people deserve a voice in government, and I am grateful to Bill Shorten for elevating this portfolio. I am also very pleased to be succeeding my friend the Hon Ed Husic MP in the employment services, workforce participation and future of work portfolio. We are at a time of great change in the Australian economy, and coming to grips with the future of work is of crucial importance.
I congratulate my colleague, the Hon Linda Burney MP, on her appointment as Shadow Minister for Families and Social Services, and her elevation to Shadow Cabinet. She is a strong and empathetic leader, and our caucus is fortunate to have her.
I congratulate Ed on his appointment as Shadow Minister for Human Services and Shadow Minister for the Digital Economy, Senator Louise Pratt on taking up her new portfolios, and Senator Jenny McAllister on her appointment as a Shadow Assistant Minister. I look forward to continuing to work with all of them.
I am excited to be continuing the fight against Mr Turnbull and the LNP’s war on young people, and to be taking on new responsibilities in employment.
Australians are sick of Mr Turnbull’s arrogant and out-of-touch approach to employment services.
The PaTH program is broken, people are facing increasingly insecure work, and young people don’t know what the jobs landscape will look like for them.
I am pleased to be part of a strong, unified alternative government. Australians deserve better than the current government and I look forward to serving in a Shorten Labor Government.
