Support refugee and migrant artists as they forge new careers in Australia

Sydney’s vibrant community will come together on November 3 for the fourth year of the New Beginnings Festival. 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.

They’ll perform traditional and contemporary dances and music on stage, lead attendees in art workshops and get the kids involved in hands-on activities. The family-friendly festival will also host market stalls of handmade cultural items and a provide a varied menu of international cuisines.

It’s being organised by the Settlement Services International – a non-for-profit humanitarian group that assists refugees and migrants with issues related to accomodation, employment and disability and youth support.
