Access was proud to join forces with the African Professionals of Australia (APA) in hosting a belated Mandela Day Celebration at the Queensland Multicultural Centre on Saturday.

Nelson Mandela was a man who lived bravely by his convictions and advocated for what is right. His legacy stands for equality and dignity, and he continues to be an inspiration for so many.

The event was attended by many esteemed guests, including Senator Paul Scarr (on behalf of The Hon. Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia), Councillor Angela Owen (on behalf of the Right Honourable Lord Mayor of Brisbane Councillor Adrian Schrinner), President of the APA, Mr Robert Mukombozi, and organisations like Multilink, QPASTT, Multicultural Australia, Queensland African Communities Council and many others who are committed to living out the legacy of Mandela.

Guests experienced a red-carpet celebration, with music, dance, international cuisine, and live entertainment.
