Current Multicultural Ambassadors City of Ballarat Program City of Ballarat 2012-2014

City of Ballarat Multicultural Ambassador Program [MAP] is a volunteer program supported by City of Ballarat.

Some of us have relocated to Australia as war refugees and some of us were lucky enough to migrate voluntarily, but what we all have in common is that we are all passionate about the Australian culture as well as sharing our own culture, languages, food and customs.

I have a strong interest in community development focusing on my passion for the Arts and focusing my energy as an advocate for CALD community in Ballarat. I feel there is a lot of work to be done in Ballarat. I love embracing new learnings and challenging my own assumptions and views.

If you have any questions or ideas to share, feel free to send me a message or visit http://www.ballarat.vic.gov.au/pc/cultural-diversity/multicultural-ambassadors.aspx for more details.
