Hello Neighbour

The Hello Neighbour program was aimed at promoting and building connected communities across the City of Monash. A key feature of the project was the Monash Community Ambassadors. This initiative provided a unique opportunity for culturally and linguistically diverse community members to advise Council and influence project directions.

The Community Ambassadors helped:

  • mobilise their networks to reach the broader community,
  • create stronger cross-cultural connections, and
  • share their culturally diverse perspectives and experiences to support mainstream groups.

Some of the key initiatives delivered include:

  • ‘Longing for Home’ Textile Art project
  • We Stand Together as One Community ‘Say No to Racism’ forums
  • Resilience Against Racism workshop series
  • Cultural Awareness and Bystander Intervention training
  • Places of Worship Open Day
  • Monash Youth Interfaith Panel Discussion
  • Flavours of Monash cookbook.
