Multicultural Community Forum 2017

Multicultural forum

The inaugural Knox Multicultural Communities Forum will bring together people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, faiths and age groups to explore the handing down of culture from one generation to the next. Focused on questions of cultural heritage and intergenerational change the forum will create an opportunity for community members to share experiences, challenges and ideas related to the continuation of culture across generations.
