Mapping Melbourne 2016

On September 10th, 2016

Multicultural Arts Victoria (MAV) would like to invite New Star Art School to participate in Mapping Melbourne 2016. The aim is inspire local budding artists and to create a strong awareness and ongoing connection with China and Melbourne through the arts.

Multicultural Arts Victoria strongly supports projects that facilitate and promote awareness of cultural diversity and encourage acceptance of difference and harmonious relations. MAV is the peak state arts body in Victoria supporting the artists and communities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Mapping Melbourne (MM) is a new initiative of Multicultural Arts Victoria. Mapping Melbourne is about mapping our Asian cultural identity in Melbourne,

Mapping Melbourne is also about new perspectives, new possibility and new expressions: It is a multi-artform festival that is held in the heart of Melbourne annually to celebrate our identity and our connections to the world.

Mapping Melbourne will demonstrate the vibrant influence China has on Melbourne’s cultural dynamism, thus strengthening Victoria’s role as Australia’s cultural capital, and our role in promoting cultural diplomacy and friendship through the Arts with China.

I look forward to profiling contemporary arts from the New Star Art School in multicultural Melbourne and building on an ongoing relationship with the school.

Yours sincerely

Jill Morgan AM
