Melbourne City Council Supports Asian Heritage Week in Australia

Heading to Australia from May 27 to June 2, the Asian Heritage Week quickly captures the Melbourne City Council’s recognition, welcoming many notable guests including Melbourne City Councillor (Cr.) Jamal Hakim.

Founded in 2023 by AHN, Asian Heritage Week follows the mission of celebrating the rich cultural legacy of Asians and centralizing all community events in the U.S., Australia, and Canada. This is a valuable platform for Asian event hosts to pay tribute to their roots, connect with other business owners, entrepreneurs, or artists, and amplify their events to the community.
