Quotes from Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Robin Scott

“We look forward to hearing from community members regarding their suggestions for the location of the cultural precinct.”

 The Indian Cultural Precinct will recognise the important contribution the Indian community makes to Victoria and will be a place to hold festivals, a hub to support business, a drawcard for tourism, and a meeting place for the entire community.”
