Join us on Sunday 13 October for #MOSAIC, a world music, dance and cultural spectacular that celebrates the creative and rich talents of our diverse communities.

The MOSAIC Multicultural Festival celebrates the rich cultural contributions that all of us bring to our multicultural Queensland.

Together we are Queensland. Together we are a vibrant MOSAIC of people; each of us with a story to tell and a culture to celebrate.

The MOSAIC Festival celebrates who we are through dance, music, spoken word, visual arts and crafts, children’s and family activities and delectable foods and cooking demonstrations!

The MOSAIC 2019 program will feature:

  • ‘It’s Who We Are!’ an exhibition of photography, visual art and spoken word; sponsored by Multicultural Affairs Queensland.
  • ‘Lullabies and Stories – Memories of Bliss’ – showcasing diverse voices and curated by Charulatha Mani, renowned international Indian signer and Director of the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University Research Centre
  • ‘Info-Dome’ – a Café Emporium inviting festival-goers to echange ideas and information.
  • ‘Tibetan Mandala’ – at the heart of the Info-Dome will be the Tibetan Mandala created by the Tibetan community in Queensland – contribute your valuable little piece to the MOSAIC Mandala!
  • ‘Rock around the Wok!’ – Diverse Cooking Demonstrationsfeaturing notable cooks with intriguing stories
  • ‘Coffee College’ – sample a coffee from aspiring young baristas
  • ‘The Soap Box Stage’ – Brisbane meets London with Hyde Park’s Speaker’s Corner re-visited! Take time out and enjoy creative solo speakers and musicians from all four corners – or get up on your own soap box.
  • ‘Global Bazaar’ – explore the handicrafts of diverse artists and perhaps seek out a unique seasonal gift for family and friends. The Global Bazaar will be a colourful visual experience, like a busy Moroccan market place!
