Glenorchy Multicultural Community Spaces Plan
Glenorchy City Council
Identifying solutions to meet the needs of different multicultural groups for spaces and facilities to support their community, cultural and religious activities.
Plan C delivered a plan to establish the first multicultural community hub in Tasmania to prioritise support for newly arrived migrants.
In order to meet the varying needs of different multicultural groups (including newly arrived migrants and second and third generation families), we conducted initial consultation to understand the current reality of multicultural groups, services and spaces. From here, we undertook further engagement of target groups to identify their varying needs. Ultimately, the plan helped to deliver a community-driven vision for spaces and facilities in Glenorchy to support community, cultural and religious activities.
