Crossing Borders Project Gold Coast

MFO's Crossing Borders Project at HOTA om 2021

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. 

Over the past 4 years, MFO has partnered with Placemakers* Gold Coast to deliver innovative and impactful arts projects as a part of the city's annual Bleach* Festival. We have showcased the Gold Coast's diversity by participating in the Chez Nous on Chevron Middle Eastern performance in 2020, hosted a Sufra Feast as a part of the 2021 Festival and delivered an intimate documentary theatre as a part of the 2022 Bleach* Festival. 

MFO proudly collaborates with various artists, arts organisations and creatives to promote and celebrate the colorful diversity of our beautiful city. 

For more information about MFO's arts and cultural projects please contact Rana at MFO.
