Welcome to Fusion Festival – a celebration of unity in diversity for the Southern Cross University community.

Fusion Festival has a long and rich tradition at the University, held annually since its inaugural launch in 2008 and provides an opportunity to acknowledge, learn from and celebrate our diverse communities.

The festival brings together and showcases the cultural diversity within our University communities, spanning locations around Australia and the world. Diverse cultural and knowledge perspectives enhance and enrich our learning and our lives and the University is committed to being a place of belonging for all students, staff and the communities in which we work and study.
