Embracing Diversity: Creating vibrancy

As the cultural diversity of Tasmania increases there is a new vibrancy created in our cities and towns. The number of Tasmanians born overseas has increased by more than fifty percent in the last twenty years, stimulating exciting transformations.

Our taste and exposure to food is changing, entrepreneurs are starting new business ventures, and cultural experiences are shared at festivals and community events. However, with these new layers to our social fabric there are challenges faced by new arrivals and marginalised groups as they adjust to the Tasmanian way of life, find employment, housing, and social support.

Join Tasmanian Australian of the Year, John Kamara, as he takes us on a journey exploring the ways that people from diverse communities contribute to a better Tasmania, both culturally and economically. Hear how we can help them overcome systemic disadvantages.
