    World of Cultures enables Aucklanders to celebrate, share and experience the value and vibrancy of our multiculturalism

    World of Cultures aims to be the most culturally inclusive festival in Aotearoa

    Festival focus areas:

    • Multicultural understanding
    • Celebrating cultural identity

    We’re looking for:

    • Events that celebrate Auckland's cultural diversity that are interactive and educational.
    • Events that are intercultural, two or more cultures sharing traditions, language or performance for example cross cultural bake off where one culture cooks anothers traditional cuisine or where two cultures share their cultures traditional songs to sing.
    • Events that allow for deeper conversations or participation to take place - panel discussions, lessons or workshops for dance, languages, making of traditional crafts and cooking classes for traditional or fusion cuisines.
    •  Events that celebrate some of our smaller cultural communities often not represented in larger festivals such as those from areas in Africa, Scandinavia, East Asia, Caribbean & Micronesia and more.  
    • Local community groups activating at their local community or arts centre.
    • Events that take a stand against racism.
