- journalism for diversity -
To be published every alternate Wednesday, the fortnightly newspaper launching in August 2018, will be your definite guide to all things ethnic and multicultural in New Zealand.
On last count, Aotearoa had 213 ethnic groups calling it their home. Unfortunately though, in-spite of all the good intentions of average Kiwis, and efforts put in by the government machinery, ethnic communities in New Zealand still feel "alienated", "left out", or "voiceless". What aids such a feeling – and this is a general consensus - is that the ethnic issues, news, views, struggles, successes, or celebrations, don't find adequate representation in the country's public discourse.
Multicultural Times (MT) is an effort to change these prevailing state of affairs, with the ultimate goal of creating social cohesion across New Zealand.
As MT's tagline pointedly says - journalism for diversity - we hope that by bringing the ethnic side of things in the mainstream of New Zealand, society at large will develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of each other's culture. And when the wider community is sensitised about ethnic issues, it goes out of its way to help new migrants to settle-in.
In turn, New Zealand as a whole benefits and prosper.
Team MT is very excited to embark on this journey of building bridges between communities in the land of the long white cloud, and will need all your support, appreciation, and critique along the way.
Please watch this space for the next two months, as we get closer to our launch date!
