Multicultural Hobart


Hobart becomes a more multicultural and welcoming city that celebrates diversity and encourages migrants to settle here.


Establish a Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Roundtable to engage twice a year with community leaders to understand issues facing communities.

As leader of the Council, stand up and speak out against racial and religious intolerance and discrimination.

Advocate for Hobart City Council to become part of the Welcoming Cities Network and commit to:

  • Ensuring that Council community grant programs are accessible and supporting initiatives that nurture connections between migrant and established communities.
  • Advocate for more funding to celebrate a diverse range of community festivals, cultural events and religious observances in Hobart
  • Providing information on council services, and new resident information guides in a range of community languages.
  • Advocating for the Council’s workforce to better reflect the diverse nature of the Hobart community.
