The Future of Darebin's Intercultural Centre

Council is relocating Darebin’s Intercultural Centre and proposing a fresh approach. We want to know what would make you feel welcome at the new Centre.

What's happened so far?

In 2019, Council commissioned a feasibility study to explore alternative locations for Darebin’s Intercultural Centre, and to update the Centre’s vision, mission and approach.

The study recommended that the Intercultural Centre is moved from its current location at 59A Roseberry Avenue to the municipal buildings on the corner of High and Gower Streets in Preston.

The relocated Intercultural Centre will be a visible and central expression of Council’s commitment to a more just society, and will be programmed for, by and in partnership with Darebin’s diverse communities.

We will continue to support and provide facilities to the community groups and individuals who are currently using the Intercultural Centre, and the Shire and City Halls.

You can view the summary of the discussion paper or view the detailed discussion paper.
