Iconic Brisbane Festival Proudly Celebrates Queensland’s Diverse Cultural Communities

Multicultural Australia announces the return of its iconic MOSAIC Multicultural Festival, an unmissable celebration of Queensland’s diverse communities, taking place inside Roma Street Parkland on Sunday 18 September.

For the first time, Multicultural Australia’s MOSAIC is delighted to be included in the Serenades program as part of the Brisbane Festival. Brisbane Serenades is the beating heart of the festival and MOSAIC’s vibrant contribution of multicultural performers offers an exciting celebration of Brisbane’s diversity.

MOSAIC 2022 is expected to be one of our biggest turnouts yet, offering attendees the chance to come together, learn about other cultures, and create lasting bonds with one another.

In full spring bloom, the Parkland will set the stage beautifully for MOSAIC’s eclectic program that celebrates the Sunshine State’s multiculturalism through dance, music and the arts, a range of family-friendly activities, and a smorgasbord of mouth-watering dishes.

From dancing with some of South-East Queensland’s best performers, international drumming workshops and Rock Around the Wok cooking demonstrations, through to interactive games and music classes for the kids, MOSAIC promises something for all ages.

“MOSAIC is one of Brisbane’s most iconic celebrations of multiculturalism, bringing together people from all walks of life through a shared love of music and food right in the heart of our beautiful city,” says Multicultural Australia CEO, Christine Castley.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for Brisbane communities to come together to try something new like cook a different cuisine or take part in a drumming circle, learn more about the diversity of our neighbours, friends and family, and showcase our city’s commitment to creating a safe, welcoming place for all cultures.

“The festival aims to foster greater relationships and shared understanding between cultures by putting the unique stories and contributions each individual and community brings, front and centre.

“At this year’s MOSAIC Festival we are delighted to welcome back Nicky Bomba’s Bustamento, who helped us launch the first MOSAIC Festival in 2017, we can’t wait for their infectious energy!”
“We can’t wait to see Queensland’s vibrant mosaic of people take over the Parkland this Spring as we make this year’s MOSAIC our greatest to date!”

MOSAIC Multicultural Festival is a family-friendly event presented by Multicultural Australia, supported by Suncorp, Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council.

The festival will run from 10.00 am – 5.00 pm on Sunday 18 September.
