The Multicultural Council of Tasmania’s vision is of a culturally and linguistically diverse and harmonious Tasmania that is just, fair and inclusive – where people with diverse backgrounds have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to Tasmanian society.

Our mission is to be a community based, member-driven organisation that empowers people from diverse and multicultural backgrounds to have a voice. We advocate and lobby for human rights, social justice, respect, equality and dignity for multicultural communities. We work to build an inclusive society by providing information and promoting cultures, languages and multicultural issues in the community and our members help to welcome new migrants and refugees to Tasmania.

Our values are of inclusiveness, respect, co-operation, integrity and accountability.

We work with:

  • Our member organisations
  • Residents of Tasmania with a culturally and linguistically diverse background, including people with a refugee background, international students and migrants
  • All levels of government and agencies that provide services
  • The broader Tasmanian community and organisations that we partner with to achieve our goals.

You are invited to be part of a special policy forum to discuss multiculturalism in Tasmania and the future opportunities available at the state government level. With a state election likely in the next 6 months, it’s an important time to discuss our progress and ideas for future action.

The forum will bring together leaders of migrant community organisations, service providers, policy experts, decision-makers and students. The Multicultural Affairs spokespeople from the Tasmanian Liberals, Labor and the Greens have also been invited to share their policy ideas.

The keynote speaker for the Forum will be Mr Hakan Akyol, Director of Community Participation the Victorian Office of Multicultural Affairs and Social Cohesion. Mr Akyol has a long history in the development and implementation of multicultural policies. He served as the Deputy Chairperson of the Victorian Multicultural Commission between 2005 – 2011 and Executive Officer of the Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria between 1993 – 2001.

This forum is proudly organised by the Multicultural Council of Tasmania and hosted by the Asia Institute Tasmania (University of Tasmania)

The Multicultural Council of Tasmania is supported by the Tasmanian Government.
