Cultural Programme & Groups
Our Ukrainian Community - Cultural Programme
Our aim is to increase the variety of acts performing at our community centre, and to also perform to the wider community at multicultural festivals, to promote our wonderful culture.
We have many talented people in our community, and there are many people out there that we want to encourage to take part in our different creative cultural activities.
Singers, musicians and artists!!!
Our focus is to involve more people from Ukraine in our community, as we welcome their involvement.
1. Ukrainian Community Choir
Since the formation of the Ukrainian Community in Brisbane, a group of people have always gathered together to sing and perform Ukrainian songs at our Community Centre.
We are very proud that this tradition still continues today.
Our Choir still performs at our community concerts, including:
- Ukrainian Independence day,
- Taras Shevchenko Commemoration and
- Sviato Heroiw commemoration.

The group celebrates member’s achievements, provides community news and usually there is a presentation by a guest speaker. Members enjoy morning tea and lunch together, play cards and bingo and socialise.
Members are given the opportunity to be creative by painting pysanky and other crafts. The Club has opportunities to meet throughout the month for outside activities, including lunches.
New members are always welcome and may attend 2 meetings to discover how the club works before committing to membership. Membership fee is $20 per year. Monthly attendance costs $5 which entitles you to morning tea and a light lunch. The Club meets on the first Friday of each month. Enquiries: Phone Helen on 0414 325 076.
