What has happened in the last 10 years for multicultural and/or multifaith LGBTIQ and their communities? Has there been progress toward equality? Has there been a change in approach to connecting with multicultural or LGBTIQ communities? This will all be discussed and workshopped in the AGMC Conference.
Early Bird rates are now available – join us for three days of meeting new friends, interesting discussion and practical work-shopping to build a better future for multicultural LGBTIQ communities and their family and friends.
AGMC’s first ever national conference was held in 2004 – in St Kilda Town Hall!
The City of Port Phillip has supported AGMC again to hold our 2018 national conference at the exact same hall.
Welcome to the Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council’s National Conference 2018 – with an inspirational line up of national and international Keynotes and an exciting array of workshops.
The first day will be a Youth Day Conference, and we invite all schools and students to participate. It is important to focus and build on our future generations, so that they have the skills, knowledge and confidence to forge lasting equality in Australia and internationally.
For the weekend, we will hold the National Conference, with the goal of this conference is to reflect on the past 10 years (and more) about multicultural and multifaith (MCMF) issues and questions in Australia. How far have we come to build equality and understanding within our LGBTI communities and also within our MCMF communities? What gaps have we missed and how can we address these?
We want to expand your understanding and build your connections with local, national and international groups and services. You will have the opportunity to chat with speakers, researchers and policy makers. These kinds of meetings can be rare so use this chance to shake hands and get to know each other.
Melbourne was voted the world’s most livable city for the 7th time in a row. The location venue is central and you will be able to experience the great food, coffee and festivities that Melbourne is known for. At United We Feast, celebrate with your peers and friends over international recipes and laughter.
We are very excited to see you at the National Conference. Your presence will make it a great event.
