Since 2011 we have joined forces with Multicultural Arts Victoria to present Igniting Imagination.

This project builds dynamic new bonds with our culturally and linguistically diverse communities, and brings exceptional artistic talent from Australia’s emerging, Indigenous and refugee communities to the stage.

In 2017, Igniting Imagination encompasses the Festival Ambassadors—leaders in artistic practice who represent the changing face of  diversity in the arts—and our closing event Our Place, Our Home on Sun 22 October.
