An important public conversation: “What’s happened to multiculturalism?”

At the end of June Borderlands Co-operative hosted an important public conversation: What’s happened to multiculturalism? We were very lucky to have an incredible panel responding to the Q & A: Con Pagonis, Gaetano Greco, Elizabeth Drozd, Mohamed Mohideen, Dr Jordana Silverstein, Bwe Thay, Professor Marie Brennan, Hoang Tran Nguyen. Facilitated by Jorge Jorquera, Maribyrnong City Councillor & Coordinator Borderlands Co-operative.

The national and global context suggests very challenging times for the ideals that once generated multiculturalism as policy and aspiration. This conversation went a long way to clarifying some of these challenges and generating important ideas for a renewed agenda for an authentic, meaningful cultural diversity.
