Multicultural Queensland Month – the state's largest multicultural celebration – is held in August each year.

As Queenslanders, we speak an incredible number of languages and dialects, and practice a broad range of faiths.

This year, we will explore the many ways in which language is fundamental to building a truly inclusive Queensland through the theme 'Inclusion in action'. We acknowledge the incredible skills of multilingual Queenslanders, explore practical ways to break down language barriers and consider the role we all play by choosing to use language that connects rather than divides us.

Our communities thrive when we all work together to ensure everyone can connect, contribute and belong.

Multicultural Queensland Month is an opportunity for all of us to join together to celebrate our diversity and consider how we can put inclusion into action.

Multicultural Queensland Charter

The Queensland Government has a vision of a unified, harmonious and inclusive community. One way we will achieve this is through the adoption of the Multicultural Queensland Charter principles.

The Charter's principles underpin the theme, events and activities of Multicultural Queensland Month.

Download the Multicultural Queensland Charter Guide (PDF) to see how you can incorporate the principles into everyday life.
