The purpose of the IFLC is to celebrate diversity and promote inclusion. It's the living embodiment of respect, harmony and peace that can be achieved with the universal language of art, dance and music - Colours of the World.
IFLC started in 2003 with students from 17 countries. In 2015, 160 countries took part in the events across the world with more than 2000 participants.

Sirius College is an independent, non-denominational, multi campus school operating in VIC since 1997. Sirius College offers a dynamic, engaging and comprehensive curriculum for Kindergarten to Year 12, for nearly 2500 students. Its appeal rests in the school’s strong sense of community, the values celebrated, and in the provision of a balanced education that addresses the academic, social and emotional wellbeing of all their students.
Sirius College plays a leading role in educating young generations with its continuous quest in achieving academic and creative excellence and preparing students to participate in Australian society as informed, active, caring and contributing citizens.
Sirius College will be celebrating 20 years of its establishment in 2017. IFLC Melbourne will be our school’s tribute to the multicultural city of Melbourne and our school community, which is a kaleidoscope of cultures and languages (www.sirius.vic.edu.au).
Australian Intercultural Society (AIS) is a not for profit organisation that has been operating in Melbourne since 2000 with the aims of promoting multiculturalism and fostering intercultural and interfaith dialogue. We believe in reaching out to all members of society by providing a platform for cultural and information exchange.
Since its establishment, AIS has organised international study tours, academic conferences, cultural exhibitions, Ramadan multi-faith iftar dinners and government sponsored projects, among other activities. Each event provides ample networking opportunities, so the circle of people wanting to build bridges with other communities and collaborate on projects with AIS grows with each program (www.intercultural.org.au).
