Cultural showcase at Parliament House
The talents and traditions of Victoria’s diverse communities will be showcased at Parliament House Open Day on Sunday 17 March 2019.
In celebration of Cultural Diversity Week, vibrant dance ensembles, drummers from ancient lands, an exciting lineup of musicians and even a salute to St Patrick’s Day will feature in the cultural program from 10 am to 3 pm on the steps of Parliament House and inside in Queen’s Hall.
Community members will be able to explore one of Melbourne’s most beautiful buildings and find out about the origins of democracy, how it spread around the world and how it works here in Victoria.
Tour information will be available in English, Arabic, Mandarin, Spanish and Vietnamese and there will be community guides who speak these languages ready to welcome people to the home of Victorian democracy on Spring Street.
People will be able to learn about the Victorian Parliament’s links with communities and parliaments around the world, and there will be a display of gifts the Parliament has received from international visitors.
Entry is free and all are welcome.
