In 2022, the Intercultural Cities Australian National Network was established to promote intercultural policy and practice in Local Government Authorities in Australia.

The objectives of the network are to:

  • Support Australian cities to implement intercultural policies
  • Facilitate exchange of experiences between member cities in order to encourage further development of intercultural policies and practices
  • Foster communication and collaboration between Australian and international intercultural cities which encourages further development of intercultural policies and practices
  • Disseminate information and resources from the program to its members
  • Represent Australian intercultural cities as a group within the ICC
  • Promote the intercultural cities approach in public forums in Australia

Membership of ICANN is open to Local Government Authorities and other government and non-government organisations interested in using an intercultural approach to facilitate social inclusion.

Coordinators:  Lynda Ford (iGen) and Glenda Ballantyne (Swinburne University)

ICANN meets online bi-monthly.
