Neighbours of Monash

We are inviting you to share your stories of friendship to highlight the value of cultural diversity that exists in Monash and to share the connections that make us a stronger and more vibrant community.

If you have an interesting story to share about a connection you’ve made with someone from a different cultural background – a neighbour, a school peer or a colleague - we would love to hear from you.

A similar initiative will be developed with a primary school in Monash where students will be invited to draw pictures and write a few sentences about why they value their best friend from a different background to their own. 

We will celebrate these wonderful stories of neighbourliness and friendships by publishing a selection of them in a book.

Stories will be selected for their diversity, neighbourliness and celebration of community connections and belonging in Monash.
