City of Glenorchy is one of the most culturally diverse local government areas
in Tasmania. In West Moonah alone, 17.8% of people speak a language other than
English in the home compared to an average of 4.5% across the State.
On 22 December 2016, the Tasmanian Government announced that it will be
providing $200,000 over four years to support the management of the former
Moonah Arts Centre as it transforms into a Multicultural Hub. The Hub will be a
dedicated facility where multicultural groups, can meet, interact with other
cultures and hold community events and workshops.
The Glenorchy City Council will be managing the EOI process for appointment of
an organisation to manage the facility.
