Cultural Diversity Week

The 2023 Cultural Diversity Week theme is Our Past. Our Future. The theme invites Victorians of all ages and backgrounds to reflect on multicultural Victoria's long history and celebrate its bright future.

Each year, City of Whittlesea celebrates and reflects on our rich cultural history and the contribution people of diverse backgrounds have made to our community.

Here's Nilum and Norma on why celebrating Cultural Diversity Week is so important to not only the, but also the community!
