Kulcha will use the funds to present the Oz Concert in Government House Gardens during Harmony Week in March; the multicultural arts showcase attracts thousands of people and is broadcast nationally on SBS TV.
Various organisational capacity building initiatives will gain traction with the funding, including IT and equipment upgrades, website and marketing development and the creation of an innovative culturally and linguistically diverse mentoring program.
“Kulcha has worked hard over recent years to provide excellent public value to the people of Western Australia through a range of effective arts programs and services that are now statewide,” Kulcha general manager Jon Cope said.
“Our work presents, develops and promotes WA’s culturally diverse community via the arts and leads to greater cultural appreciation, social cohesion and prosperity for all Western Australians”.
“We are extremely grateful to Lotterywest for their financial support which acknowledges the valuable contribution Kulcha makes to our rapidly growing WA community.”
