Centre for National Unification


A civic centre to celebrate diversity

The Centre for National Unification aims to improve the future experience of refugee resettlement in Australia by providing a new civic space in Melbourne’s city centre. Through the facilitation of intercultural education and increased community interaction, the centre emphasises social cohesion and compassion as key values within the city. A multi-language cinema and information offices offer spaces in which to learn and connect, while lower-level ‘reflection zones’ provide moments of calm and contemplation.
