Common Australia

COMMON has been bringing communities, cultures and religions together for over ten years. Not associated with one particular council, it has played a part in helping many councils start their own interfaith initiatives and helped create a stepping stone of dialogue, understanding and acceptance revolving around the key date of 21st September which is the UN International Day of Peace.

For the past fifteen years, COMMON has had an event on this day at a different place of worship within a different council in Victoria. Each event bringing a new group of like-minded and passionate people together to create change towards a brighter, better and more universal Victoria.

COMMON has had representatives which have helped the Australian Curriculum Authority towards including Interfaith content as part of the national curriculum. It’s faith representatives have been part of many initiatives, projects and events. It has encouraged, developed and promoted Interfaith and Multicultural diversity of Melbourne. Creating unity within the diversity of this great city.

Please let us know if we can be of any assistance to you or your organisation. We look forward to all future collaborations.
