To mark Queensland Multicultural Month, Access' Arts and Culture-arm BEMAC is once again coordinating Culture Train, which will traverse the countryside with its cast of multicultural musicians and messages of inclusion and community harmony. Featuring five world-renowned artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, Culture Train will take its collective of traditional and contemporary music and storytelling to regional and remote Queensland audiences who are often do not have the opportunity to experience cultural performances of this calibre.

From August 18, audiences will be able to immerse themselves in a unique cultural and musical experience, as Culture Train’s program of free concerts makes its way to 13 regional communities across the state, including Barcaldine, Longreach, Rockhampton, Winton and Chinchilla. The troupe will be performing at a number of festivals throughout Multicultural Month including the Quandamooka Festival, the Toowoomba Languages and Cultures Festival and the Rockhampton Cultural Festival. In addition to community performances, free workshops will also be held in various schools and community centres and Culture Train will stop over in the state’s capital for an intimate performance under the iconic Story Bridge at the Queensland Multicultural Centre.
