The History Project

The Boîte History Project began in 2016 when we received a funding grant from the Victorian Multicultural Commission enabling historian Jen Rose to undertaken oral history interviews with founding members of the organisation. In 2017, a Local History Grant form the Public Records Office of Victoria and funding support from Creative Victoria enabled Jen to undertake more research, more interviews, digitise film and audio of early concerts and develop a website to share our history through music, song and story. 

The Boîte: history through music, song and story was awarded the Community Diversity Award at the 2020 Victorian Community History Awards.


The Boîte is Victoria’s iconic multicultural music organisation. Founded in 1979, it supports excellent artists from diverse cultural communities, promotes cultural understanding through the dynamic presentation of unique cultural experiences, and nurtures creativity, collaboration, access to and active participation in the arts.
