Bold Thinking Series: Social Cohesion in the Goulburn Valley

While earlier waves of migration were mostly self-driven in response to a variety of either push or pull factors, recent years have seen the arrival of many refugees and asylum seekers.  As the Goulburn Valley is also home to Victoria’s largest Indigenous population outside Melbourne, the variety of cultures and nationalities, as well as the many diverse migration circumstances, suggests that the region is well-placed to be a source of valuable information regarding success factors and challenges facing a culturally diverse regional community.

Hear from an expert panel comprised of La Trobe academics Dr Anthony Moran and Dr Julie Andrews, Kon Karapanagiotidis (Asylum Seeker Resource Centre) and Fatima Al-Qarakchy (Kildonan's Settlement Services) at this special Bold Thinking Series event.

The Bold Thinking Series evening event at the Eastbank Centre will follow the Looking Back, Looking Forward one day multicultural conference at La Trobe University’s Shepparton campus, which celebrates the 10th anniversary of the inaugural Cultural Diversity and Social Harmony conference hosted by La Trobe in 2007.
