Kultour on the Move

Kultour, the national key organisation working with the arts sector in advancing cultural diversity in the Arts in Australia, is moving from Melbourne to Western Sydney. This move forms part of a new national strategic direction responding to sector feedback as Kultour seeks to build continued national representation for the multicultural sector in all facets of cultural practice.  

Our Australian society is constantly changing and developing, our communities increasingly enriched by these changes. Kultour is reading these changes and is determined to overcome obstacles to positive futures for the expression of cultural diversity in the arts. Closer proximity to Canberra and immersion in significant and large communities of multicultural artists and organisations in Australia is critical as we advocate for greater representation of artists from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds across the arts so that the national arts landscape in Australia reflects the society in which we all live.

The move to Sydney brings with it the search for a new Leadership role – Director, Advocacy & Opportunities, Kultour – to carve pathways for culturally and linguistically diverse artists and arts, from cultural policy to cultural and arts practice. This role and further information on recruitment processes will be released shortly. The Melbourne office will continue to operate through March until the Sydney base is established.

The Kultour Board thanks Julie Tipene O’Toole for her contribution to Kultour as Melbourne-based CEO since 2012, particularly to advocacy and the national delivery of the Kultour Gatherings.

Darwin Community Arts is a company member of Kultour, and our Executive Officer, Christian (Bong) Ramilo, is a member of the Board of Directors.
