Celebrating Special Occasions of All Cultures in New Zealand

A Multicultural New Zealand Survey

Tena koutou katoa. Welcome to the beginning of MNZ's landmark initiative. The purpose of this survey is to receive and share a full understanding of the cultural occasions that are celebrated by all communities that make up a Tiriti-based Multicultural Aotearoa NZ.

This will provide the basis of New  first ever Tiriti-based Multicultural Calendar. There are upwards of 100 ethnicities in New Zealand. All of which have occasions throughout the year that we celebrate - some in different ways, some in more similar ways that we may realise. We share this calendar as part of our vision to see New Zealand's colourful cultural mosaic flourish.

We understand that many of you will have more than one significant occasion, but for the purpose of this survey we ask that you focus on one per survey, and thank you for your contribution.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. 

Please note: We will be acknowledging your time with a donation to a charity of your choice, please see bottom of survey.
