Reflecting diverse cultures
26 August 2018
We proudly help to tell the multi-cultural stories of Australia through community media.
Our funding of Stereo 974 from the inner-western suburbs of Melbourne has helped to engage a diverse, local community. Programs are broadcast in different languages, allowing people to preserve and connect with their culture. Languages represented on various shows include Turkish, Serbian, Punjabi, Maltese, Samoan, Somalian, Greek and Vietnamese.
For some, these programs are a connection to their home country and for others, hearing broadcasts in their own language strengthens their bond to multicultural Australia.
Our grant trained broadcasters in best practice, giving these volunteers the confidence and skills to bring their culture to life over the airwaves.
