Time to unlock multicultural Victoria’s potential


Melbourne: “Technology is for answers and humans are for questions” is the mindset leading futurist and thought provocateur Morris Miselowski will bring to the Art and Science of Communication in Multicultural Victoria forum on Thursday 17 March.

The inaugural industry event – led by Polaron Language Services in partnership with the Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV) – will be opened by the Minister for Multicultural Affairs, The Hon. Robin Scott, as part of Cultural Diversity Week celebrations.

Business futurist and media personality, Morris Miselowski, will explore the Future of Multiculturalism in a Digital Age and expose the changes this Cultural Revolution will have on life, family, community, work, communication and language.

The inaugural forum will open the stage to an eclectic mix of presenters who will explore the ever-evolving communication landscape in Victoria. It will bring together emerging trends, and ideas and technologies in the global context of the digital revolution. Accelerated learning, sharing knowledge and establishing networks will be just some of the topics included on the progam, according to an ECCV press release.

ECCV Chairperson, Eddie Micallef, said the forum presented an outstanding opportunity to put communications and their potential in multicultural Victoria “under the microscope”.

“I would strongly urge service providers working with culturally and linguistically diverse communities throughout Victoria, who are interested in improving the way they communicate – especially through various electronic media – to attend this forum, which promises to be ground-breaking.” (TIW)
