Inspire Launch – a night of celebration
On the 22nd of June 2017 the Migrant Resource Centre (Southern Tasmania) launched Inspire, an innovative and vibrant program that highlights the positive contributions made by migrants and refugees to the Tasmanian community.
Booking a performer is now as easy as browsing the amazing talented Tasmanian performers on offer and the requesting a performer via this website.
To celebrate the launch of Inspire, the red carpet was rolled out for a special one-night-only performance by Inspire participants, held at the Peacock Theatre in Hobart. Guests were bedazzled by the variety of talent on offer, including Hip hop, Bollywood dance, African percussion, Afghan House Music and Afro Pop. The show was hosted by the very talented Inspire Public Speakers.
Thank you to everyone who attended, including representatives from Tasmanian businesses, local and state government, schools, and local community members.
The Inspire program provides opportunities for multicultural Tasmanian performers to grow, learn and flourish in Tasmania. Since the launch, Inspire has received an overwhelming amount of interest and support from the community and a number of participants have been booked.
Inspire is funded by the Tasmanian Government, Department of State Growth. The Inspire website is funded by the Tasmanian Government, Department of Premier and Cabinet, Communities, Sport and Recreation.
