The first event in a series of talks connecting communities and unpacking what it means to be Asian in Australia.
Australia has one of the most multicultural populations on the planet, and a lot of that multiculturalism is made up of people with Asian heritage. This panel discussion aims to unpack what it means to be Asian in Australia, open dialogue channels and help communities understand one another better.
On the night, a panel will lead a discussion on what it means to be Asian in Australia, explore the future of the Asian-Australian identity and unpack how Asian culture in Australia differs from other countries.
You’ll hear from City of Melbourne councillor Philip Le Liu, Democracy in Colour founder Tim Lo Surdo, ANU Centre for Asian-Australian Leadership director Jieh-Yung Lo and youth advocate Yasmin Poole. There’ll be drinks and snacks for all attendees, plus Scoopy will dish up some unreleased flavour samples.

Asian Futures takes place on Thursday July 15 and June 10 from 6.30pm to 9pm at Worksmith, 450 Smith Street Collingwood.
