World Music Café has secured support from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grants Program to produce a series of digital media programs over two years showcasing Australia’s inspiring cultural diversity for international audiences.
World Music Café is a social enterprise, based in Perth, that celebrates creativity, collaboration and connection, through music, food, and stories.
The World Music Café team present quality performance events featuring a diversity of artists and a fusion of global cuisine, while also providing skills development, work experience, and social connection for new Australian migrants of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
The online 30-minute magazine-style programs will feature live musical performances, artist interviews, cooking segments, plus cultural stories from the team members, artists, and audiences, drawing on region-specific migrant diasporas.
The programs will also include complimentary digital postcard segments created by international media partners relevant to the program focus regions, such as southern Africa, central Asia, and southeast Asia.
The World Music Café Show is produced by Multicultural Futures’ World Music Café Facilitator Jon Cope, filmed and edited by Genevieve Cooper of Joy of Colour Media, with production consultancy by Graeme Sward and Ross McCallum.
World Music Café is a social enterprise originally created in 2019 as part of the ‘Try Test Learn’ Multicultural Enterprise Development Project by Multicultural Futures and community partner United in Diversity.
