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.

Mwase Makalani was born in Malawi and moved to Australia in 2003 to be with his partner. He is now living in Tasmania, working with young people in his role as a Social Worker. Mwase found his passion for performance by touring schools with other new migrants, and sharing their traditional cultures with school children. His unique performances incorporate music and dance with a Malawi influence to tell the traditional stories of his homeland. He also enjoys performing with a local reggae band and participating in various festivals around Tasmania, including MONA and the Cygnet Folk Festival.

Hobart-based band, Paywand, perform Afghan House Music with a clever fusion of styles based on traditional Afghani, Persian and Indian music. The members of Paywand began as young musicians in Afghanistan, creating upbeat, inspiring music and captivating audiences with a rich, cultural experience.
Paywand is Persian word word, meaning Connect and was inspired by wedding performances where these young musicians witnessed the powerful connection music both brings and represents.
Paywand are passionate about bringing their unique style of music to the wider community, creating connections between performer and listener, and sharing their energy and joyousness with new audiences.
