History and Mission

In 2017 the Multicultural Council of Tasmania won a competitive tender process with Glenorchy City Council to manage the Multicultural Hub as an innovative transitional space focusing on the needs of newly arrived and established communities.

MCOT’s mission is to be a community based, member-driven organization that empowers people from diverse and multicultural backgrounds to have a voice. We advocate for 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.

The Hub is a space that all communities, particularly recent arrivals, can safely utilize for events, gatherings, and religious purposes. MCOT wishes to foster cross-cultural engagement and opportunities by providing a variety of programs and events in consultation with its member communities. We are also getting ready to establish an Advisory Committee which will assist in the Hub’s program of activities.

The building that now is home to the Multicultural Hub has a long history of community use, first as a library and then as the original Moonah Arts Centre.  It is again coming to life as a much-needed focal  point for our emerging multicultural communities.
