Loddon Campaspe Multicultural Services (Multicultural Services) is a welcoming not-for-profit organisation that empowers people from migrant and refugee backgrounds to participate fully in Australian society. We are an ethnic communities council run by and for multicultural communities.

We are the peak multicultural organisation in the Loddon Campaspe region.

This exhibition – a collection of stories made up of words and images – is part of the Our Home, Our Future Project. Eight contributors from Central Victoria kindly shared their images and stories about their journey to Bendigo, what home and belonging mean to them and their vision for a vibrant and inclusive future. We give a heartfelt thank-you to these contributors and their communities for their ongoing courage and generosity:
