Africa Day is the international annual commemoration of the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) on May 25, 1963. The OAU, currently recognized as the African Union (AU), comprises 54 member states and is driving the African integration and development process among member states, the Regional Economic Communities and African citizens including those in the diaspora. May 25th provides an opportunity to acknowledge the achievements of the peoples of Africa. This day is celebrated all over the world in partnership with the United Nations and the African Union.

In Melbourne and across Australia, as a result of the hard work of the Africa Day Australia Committee, the day has become a commemorative day of unity for Victorians of African descent, celebrating their African cultural heritage with the rest of the Australian multicultural community as a way to encourage increased intercultural engagement.

The Africa Day Celebrations are supported by Multicultural Arts Victoria as part of Emerge Festival 2014, which presents new refugee and emerging artists who have recently settled in Australia. From May 17 – July 5, Multicultural Arts Victoria will celebrate the 11th anniversary of Emerge Festival, showcasing talented artists from Melbourne’s emerging refugee communities and the diverse cultures that have woven colourful and intricate patterns into the identity of our unique city.
