Join us at our public forum to learn more about the Pacific communities in Mildura, Robinvale and surrounding areas. The forum will involve a panel discussion and question time and we have invited Pacific community leaders and young, emerging role models as panel speakers, so the audience can directly hear Pacific people’s voices.

The forum marks the end of a 4.5 year research project ‘Pacific Islanders in regional Victoria’ focusing on Mildura and Robinvale. This research has been funded by the Australian Research Council and La Trobe University and is being conducted by Professor Helen Lee and Dr Makiko Nishitani from La Trobe University, and our Partner Investigator Mr Dean Wickham from Sunraysia Mallee Ethnic Communities Council. Mallee Sports Assembly is our other Partner Organisation.

About 150 Pacific people in Sunraysia (16 – 72 years old) have participated in this research and expressed their views about issues in their communities. We have also interviewed teachers, youth workers and others engaging with Pacific communities. The public forum is an opportunity to deliver our findings and to provide an opportunity for the audience to hear the voices of Pacific people.

The workshop will run from 4.00 to 5.00pm, followed by refreshments and a chance for networking.  Registrations essential!
