Location: Deakin Edge (map Q)

Living in Multicultural Multifaith Melbourne is the annual youth forum staged as part of Buddha’s Day and Multicultural Festival.

With a focus on the distribution and celebration of faith and culture throughout the city, youth speakers from Multifaith Multicultural Youth Network (MMYN) will provide their insights and experiences of their particular faiths and cultures in order to help spread understanding and awareness.

The event aims to give young people a floor from which to share ideas and issues surrounding faith and culture, with emphasis on developing understanding and tolerance within the general public.

MMYN was established in September 2007 to provide advice to the Victorian Government, through the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship (OMAC), on issues and initiatives that affect young Victorians from culturally, religiously and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

The forum is proudly supported by Multifaith Multicultural Youth Network (MMYN) and Victoria Multicultural Commission.
