The Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) Biennial National Conference to the theme of Celebrate. Reflect. Advance: Challenges and Possibilities for Multicultural Australia is on in Darwin, for the first time since 1999, later this year. It’s on from Sunday 8 to Tuesday 10 October 2017 at the Darwin Convention Centre. We have a terrific program – check it out at: http://fecca2017.com.au/program/
The Multicultural Council of the Northern Territory (MCNT) is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, of the MCNT, and we invite you to register for this historic FECCA Conference in Darwin and join us for a vibrant discussion of issues relevant for contemporary multicultural Australia with delegates from across the country.
Please note that Early Bird registration closes on Wednesday 16 August 2017. FECCA is also seeking expressions of interest from local practitioners for the Scholarship Program to attend, and actively participate in, the three-day FECCA Conference in Darwin (see the attached notices for more detail).
Successful recipients of the Scholarship Program will receive free registration to attend the 3 day Conference. They will have access to all Conference sessions (excluding the Gala Dinner), explore issues of interest, discuss their emerging ideas with experienced actors in the sector, network, and establish connections for the future.
Expressions of interest for the Scholarship Program are sought from individuals who are keen to engage with the multicultural sector, and who are otherwise unable to attend the Conference due to financial reasons. We particularly encourage applications from:
- Those who recently entered Australia on humanitarian visas
- Unwaged or those with valid concession cards (particularly Aged Pensioners)
- People living with disability
All expressions of interest must be submitted by 5:00pm AEST on Wednesday 16 August 2017. For more information about the Scholarship Program, please contact Dr Alia Imtoual at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (02) 6282 5755.
