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.
In 2017, FECCA’s National Biennial Conference was held in Darwin from the 8-10 October at the Darwin Convention Centre. 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.
The FECCA Conference Committee are now hard at work developing an exciting program and are looking forward to welcoming you to our upcoming conference in Hobart 2019.
The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Purpose, Leadership, Progress: 40 years and beyond’. We are delighted to partner with the Multicultural Council of Tasmania, in what is our joint 40th year of progressing multiculturalism in Australia.
This year you will hear from new speakers, young people and diverse voices that will shape our multicultural Australia into the future.
