Latin House Inc. has been developing cultural events and activities to promote Latin culture since the beginning of our not-for-profit organisation in 2018.
We are a small group of passionate volunteers from different countries who recognise the incredible potential that Latinos have to contribute to the economy and cultural richness of Australia.
Our Latin Bazaar Market and the Colombian Independence Day provide unique spaces in the heart of Brisbane city to showcase Latin American gastronomy,traditional music and dance performances, and other talents.
During 2018 and 2019, we impacted more than 16,000 people. We promoted food stalls, traditional dancing groups, performers, DJs and other services such as educationalinstitutions, health providers and other organisations.
We want to create more opportunities for our community, and we want you to be a part of it! Together we are stronger, and we will reach and enrich the lives of more people.
Why Latin House Inc
In 2017 arrived more than 15,000* Latinos looking for better opportunities in Australia, during this journey they have to deal with many difficulties that we would like to prevent.
Common Issues for Latin People in Australia
FIND THE FIRST JOB
Latino community struggle finding the first job opportunity in the first 6 months after arrived.
One of the main problems once Latino community arrive to Australia is the miscommunication due to the Language barrier.
FIND MIGRATION PATHWAYS
Most of students feel that they dont have rights in Australia becouse of their status in this country. We want to be sure they know that they are protected and supported by government and other organisations
There is a big difference in between Latino culture and Australian culture. Once the student arrive they need a cultural immersion. Latin House provide spaces where they can know more about local culture.
Being far away from home, most of the time came with some depression and other mental issues. We will provide spaces that contribute to improve the mental health and prevent depression.
Get in touch!
We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.
