Fitzroy Town Hall opens its doors and Napier Street gets closed off for an all-day block party with three stages of non-stop world music and a vibrant cultural marketplace. Dance to traditional rhythms from Sudan to Iran; relish the distinct urban sounds coming from Melbourne’s diverse communities, whilst inhaling the aromas of an Ethiopian coffee ceremony and tasty authentic foods from all corners of the globe. Take a break from dancing to join in some free cultural workshops, storytelling circle, henna tattoos, hair braiding and kids’ activities. Wind up the day on the dance floor with energetic West African dance and rhythms from Lamine Sonko and the African Intelligence.

Be part of this one of a kind grass roots event which will unearth and showcase some incredible talents from Melbourne’s emerging and refugee communities while paying respect to Indigenous Australians as the first people of this land and recognising their continuing spiritual, physical and cultural connection to the land.

Emerge Main Event is produced 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.
