FECCA holds a number of events throughout the year, including roundtables, community consultations, workshops and forums, to provide independent feedback and input into government policy development and service delivery.

We also host our Biennial Conferences’, which are the preeminent forums to discuss and debate issues related to Australia’s multiculturalism. In 2016, FECCA hosted our inaugural National Multicultural Women’s Conference in conjunction with Settlement Services International. FECCA has confirmed that the 2017 National Biennial Conference will be held in Darwin on the 8-10 October 2017 at the Darwin Convention Centre. The Committee are now hard at work developing an exciting program and are looking forward to welcoming you to Darwin in 2017.

The FECCA Conference is an important national event that brings together the community sector to help shape future directions for Australia’s multiculturalism. It also provides a platform that encourages inclusive dialogue on the challenges and opportunities for our changing cultural and linguistic landscape.

As the peak representative body for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Australians, FECCA is proud to celebrate and support Harmony Day on 21 March 2017. Diversity is what makes Australia such a great place to live, from the oldest continuous culture of our first Australians to the cultures of our newest arrivals from around the world.

Multicultural Australia is an integral part of our national identity. All people who migrate to Australia bring with them some of their own cultural and religious traditions, as well as taking on many new traditions. Collectively, these traditions have enriched our nation.
