Nelson Multicultural Council and Victoria University research project for Nelson Tasman

Nelson Multicultural Council and Victoria University are undertaking some research to look at the growing diversity of Nelson Tasman. More than 20% of the people in this region were born overseas and Nelson has the third highest percentage of people born overseas for any region in New Zealand after Auckland and Wellington. New migrants in the region bring a diversity and vibrancy which creates an even richer mix of people in this area. We are interested to talk with them about their experience – to find out what is going well and to see how anything could be made easier as they settle in to their new home.
The next workshop will be held at Tahunanui Community Centre, 61 Muratai Street, Nelson on Saturday, 7 October from 10am to 2pm with lunch provided.
If you would like to attend, please contact Brigid Ryan, Ph. 5402321 or 021400718. Email is brigidryan.research@gmail.com.Read More
