There truly is something for everyone.

Melbourne’s Immigration Museum is presenting a brand new event devoted to multicultural arts and music. Generations is a day-long celebration of Melbourne’s diverse community, showcasing the powerful forces moulding culture and society.

Taking place later this month, the event comes jam-packed with insightful discussions, captivating performances and plenty of food. Notable acts heading to the festival are singer-songwriter Adrian Eagle, poet Maxine Beneba Clarke and R&B icon Thando, among many others.

Bringing together a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds, Generations has locked in rare performances from cross-cultural 10-piece Assembly, dance workshops from hip hop group L2R and a new collaboration dubbed ‘Evolution’, led by Afro-Latin singer Iaki Vallejo.

If you’re feeling peckish while out and about, an array of food options will be on-site to dish out the goods. Ticketholders will also get access to the Our Bodies, Our Voices, Our Marks exhibition currently underway.

Generations takes place on Saturday October 26. Tickets are $15 via the museum website.
