Welcome to Australia June 2011

The Welcome to Australia initiative encourages people and organisations to get involved in welcoming asylum seekers, refugees, new arrivals and other migrants. Between June 19 and 26, 2011, the initiative encourages you to throw a party in your home, street, office, sporting club or other community group to celebrate the beauty and depth that diversity adds to our nation.

Welcome to Australia aims to create opportunities for new and authentic friendships, for new and long-term Australians to share their stories and to be a part of cultivating a culture of welcome in this nation we now share as our common home.

Visit the Welcome to Australia website to register your party, share a story or to download the DVD and information sheets.
