About The Boite
The Boîte is Victoria’s iconic multicultural music organisation, creating opportunities for culturally diverse music to contribute to a richer, more inclusive Australia. Founded in 1979, it supports artists from diverse communities, promoting cultural understanding through the dynamic presentation of unique musical experiences, and nurtures creativity, collaboration, access to and active participation in the arts.
Through our prolific program of festivals, events and radio programs we have presented and promoted hundreds of excellent musicians born in over 100 different countries at over 5,000 events before audiences exceeding 800,000 and just as diverse.
What We Do
Our events facilitate this by actively bringing communities together in safe spaces where we can enjoy the differences through song, dance
We offer opportunities to educate children and youth to engage with diversity, develop respect and experience the benefits of music. The Boîte Schools Chorus involves dozens of schools and hundreds of students from across the state. Our regular concerts are open to all ages accessing traditional songs and new compositions, right here in the artistic melting pot of Melbourne. Our aim is to help the next generation see all people not matter the background or culture as humans at their best.
