Get on board with Culture Train 2016


As part of Queensland’s largest celebration of our multiculturalism and the depth within our diversity, Culture Train 2016 will be a travelling performance unlike any other. It will traverse the countryside taking its collective of traditional and contemporary music and performance arts from a myriad of cultures to regional Queensland locations.


Featuring six world-renowned artists from ethnically diverse backgrounds, audiences will be able to immerse themselves in a unique cultural and musical experience, as the program of free concerts makes its way to 16 regional communities across the state, including Murgon, Goondiwindi, Roma, Wallumbilla, Barcaldine, Townsville and Rockhampton.

The performing artists: Tenzin Choegyal, Mario Celestino Conde, Tichawona Noble Mashawa, Dheeraj Shrestha, Ruth Ghee, Sudha Manian, Kiri Waiata.

The troupes will be performing at a number of festivals throughout Multicultural Month including Central Highlands Multicultural Festival, Rockhampton Cultural Festival, and the Townsville Cultural Festival. In addition to the performances, free workshops will also be held in schools and community centres.

The tour will culminate in a final performance on August 31 at Brisbane’s Queensland Multicultural Centre for Diversity@Dusk, the closing event for Queensland Multicultural Month.
