Support refugee and migrant artists as they forge new careers in Australia at this joyful spring carnival

Sydney’s vibrant community will come together on November 16 for the fifth year of the New Beginnings Festival. The spring edition of this big day of culture in Tumbalong Park will showcase the skills and talents of Sydneysiders who came to Australia as refugees, those seeking asylum and others who have recently migrated to this fine city.

Expect traditional and contemporary dance, live music and slam poetry on stage, plus workshops for kids and adults throughout the festival. The family-friendly event will also host a market of handmade gifts and homewares and provide a varied menu of international cuisines.

It’s being organised by the Settlement Services International – a not-for-profit humanitarian group that assists refugees and migrants with issues related to accomodation, employment, disability and youth support.
