Aims + Outcomes

The aim of the review was to assist the VMC to understand its impact over the last 40 years and to identify community expectations for future work to create cultural inclusion, build community capacity, and celebrate cultural diversity. 

Methods

The methodology included a document review which focused on the historical work and impact of the Commission. Approximately 40 interviews and focus groups were also conducted with a range of historical and contemporary stakeholders to establish perceived impact and future expectations for the Commission.
