This year’s 29th Fiesta Kultura festivities are aligned with The United Nations 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, in recognition of the tremendous potential of the tourism industry, which accounts for some 10% of the world's economic activity, to contribute to the fight against poverty and foster mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue, which are at the heart of UNESCO's mission.
Tourism is driven by the forces of globalization that have led to a tremendous growth in the circulation of goods and ideas, people and cultural trends. It can be pathways that allow visitors to enjoy and learn from the wealth and diversity of cultural heritage, cultural expressions and intangible cultural practices. It helps local cultural industries find new audiences, as well as markets, for their goods and services, according to UNESCO.
The Miss Philippines Australia and Miss Charity Queen Australia beauty pageant brings together young Filipina-Australian women from all over the country. Ranging from 16 to 25 years of age, these young women take to their communities and share their diverse set of talents, skills and passions in order to raise funds for charities across Australia and the Philippines.
Nine (9) talented, young and beautiful Filipino-Australian ladies from NSW and Queensland are vying for the Miss Philippines Australia and Miss Charity Queen 2017. These beauties are now very busy and focus on their charity activities and rehearsals until they’re ready & prepared for the actual judging on the evening of 2nd October pageant. High profile community leaders and VIP guests in the field of pageantry are invited to be in the Board of Judges.
Other Special guests will include Philippine Diplomatic representatives as new Consul General will arrive in November, Federal and State Members of Parliament (MPs), Representatives of Local Councils, Representatives of Multicultural communities, Fil-Oz community leaders and other dignitaries.
