About Call to the Nations
Call to the Nations is an acknowledgement and celebration of multiculturalism. It is a call to local, state and national governments, individuals and key organisations to listen to and include the opinions and experiences of all groups from whatever ethnic background. Call to the Nations will be one of the largest gatherings of those who work in and support the development of ethnic communities - bringing together around 300-400 delegates from diverse community groups, councils, local government, federal and state government, business, media and education. In addition to learning about others, attendees will be able to learn about themselves through self-assessment and other reflective exercises. This is the event that will renew commitment, build partnerships and excite new vision.It will be an extraordinarily dynamic occasion making Call to the Nations one of the most important multicultural conferences in Australia. The 2008 conference will feature a massive concert entitled Reach out And Celebrate Ethnicity - R.A.C.E. The concert will take place on the final night of the conference and include performances from a variety of ethnic groups. This concert will be open to the entire community although places will be strictly limited.
