The 6th Diversity Matters forum was held on 23-25 September 2010 at the campus of LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. The forum explored the role that the arts can play in helping to bridge gaps, build social capital and strengthen social cohesion, and featured a range of distinguished international presenters from the Commonwealth who shared their experience and expertise in the area of social cohesion and the arts.
The thought-provoking presentations and discussions held during the forum produced several recommendations and practical solutions to be presented at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Perth, Western Australia in October 2011.
The Sixth Diversity Matters Forum was organised by the Australian Multicultural Foundation in partnership with the Commonwealth Foundation (UK), LASALLE College of the Arts, the Australian High Commission in Singapore, the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Victoria (Australia), the Monash University Institute for the Study of Global Movements (Australia), Kape Communications (Australia) and The Statesman (India).
