Begun in 1993, the Nelson Multicultural Council has grown over the years, under the banner of “Promoting Unity In Diversity.”
In recent months an associated new website has been launched onto the local Nelson scene.
Some of the Aims & Objectives the group is focused on are;
• To promote and protect the interests of the diverse cultural communities in the Nelson region.
• To enable diverse cultural communities to give each other mutual support and strength to deal with issues which affect them all and to speak with one voice on those issues.

• To enable the ethnic groups to openly express their commitment to New Zealand while at the same time, protecting their cultural heritage and identity.
• To promote the Nelson Region as a multicultural society.
The group will also be participating and celebrating Global Family Fun Day, on the afternoon of Anzac Day, this Sunday, 25th April at Victory Square Park, 1pm – 4pm…..all welcome.
