Arts & Culture
At MFO we believe that art is a powerful form of communication that touches the deepest part of our soul and is the perfect vehicle to deliver a strong message of unity and oneness in our community on the Gold Coast. Arts and cultural projects also provide a fantastic means to promote the positive impacts of diversity and greatly enrich our city while providing opportunities for our CALD community to express themselves through creative means.
Over the past 25 years, MFO has coordinated a number of arts and cultural projects including cultural festivals, arts and crafts projects and various exhibitions and musical events.
We also support diverse, local artists by assisting them to learn business skills, building their networks and linking them to other artists or organisations for support.
MFO currently facilitates the International Women’s Arts and Crafts group in partnership with GC MAGIC and collaborates with various arts groups, artists and arts and cultural organisations to deliver innovative and impactful projects that celebrate the colorful diversity of our beautiful city.
