BEMAC named a finalist in the 2017 Queensland Multicultural Awards
BEMAC has been named among 24 of Queensland’s top multicultural achievers to be selected as finalists in this year’s Queensland Multicultural Awards.
Multicultural Affairs Minister Grace Grace said the awards recognise the enormous contribution of Queenslanders from right across the state.
“These wonderful awards are an opportunity to acknowledge the important contribution of so many in our communities who work tirelessly to promote an inclusive Queensland,” she said.
BEMAC General Manager Leanne Tu’ipulotu said she was honoured and excited that the organisation had been selected as a finalist in the category of Community Sector Organisation.
This year, 106 nominations were received across six categories. Award winners will be announced at a Gala Lunch at the Logan Entertainment Centre on 6 August.
“For the last 30 years BEMAC has been the heart of multicultural arts in Queensland,” Ms Tu’ipulotu said.
“We are driven to fuel the diverse practice of music and allied art forms to grow an inclusive and dynamic society that embraces multiculturalism as one of its greatest assets and strengths.”
