Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) Program

Have you or someone you know been in Australia less than 5 years, and need help with understanding Australian systems and forms, housing, employment or education? We work with our partners in the Regional Multicultural Consortium to support people and build stronger communities and meaningful connections. We can provide casework and interpreter support. Our bilingual settlement workers provide these services across regional Victoria.

For support, contact SETS Coordinator, Heeyoung: or 0491 066 247.

Anti-Racism Bystander Training

Anti-Racism Bystander Training is a perfect platform for developing an understanding of racism and technology to challenge racism.

Anti-Racism Music Based Intercultural Engagement Program

BRMC is working in partnership with Stella Savy (Cocosounds) to deliver this program. Her rich experiences provide an important opportunity for children to understand multiculturalism, empathise with multicultural people, and further learn how important antiracism is.

We provided this program at Invermay Primary School on 14, 21, 28 February and 7 March. Students actively participated in various activities with Stella to understand multiculturalism and racism.

For further information, please contact Heeyoung on 0491 066 247 or

Anti-Racism Intercultural Music Workshop

BRMC will provide amazing music workshops with professional musicians Valanga Khoza and Stella Savy. Participants aged 12-25 will have the opportunity to learn drumming and singing. In addition, musician Valanga will share the racism he has experienced during his life as an African-Australian with a refugee background and lived story of overcoming racism. Multicultural teenagers and young people participating in the workshop will have time to express their experiences through music, and share racism they have experienced in school or society with others.
This session is scheduled for 23, 30 April and 14, 21 May.

If you want to join, please contact Heeyoung on 0491 066 247 or
