A new project is underway to relocate the Darebin Intercultural Centre.

Over the next few months, Council will work with a Community Reference Group which will provide advice on the future design and programming objectives of the relocated Centre.

In its new centrally located position within the Preston Civic buildings on the corner of High and Gower Streets, the Centre will be a visible expression of Council’s commitment to a more just society.

In addition to the relocation, a new approach will be taken to refresh the programming principles. The planning for this new phase of the Centre will be undertaken in partnership between Council and Darebin’s diverse communities..


What’s happened so far?

In December 2019, Council decided to relocate the Darebin Intercultural Centre from its current position at 59a Roseberry Avenue Preston to the more centrally located municipal buildings on the corner of High and Gower Streets Preston.

For more information on the relocation of the Darebin Intercultural Centre and the updated approach to programming, take a look at the Document Library (on the right).


What’s happening next?

A selection panel will meet to decide on membership of the CRG which will include eight community representatives who have a strong understanding of and connection with culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Darebin.

The members will be tasked with helping Council make sure that the Centre is designed to be a welcoming and inclusive space for Darebin’s many multicultural communities.

Expressions of interest are now closed.
