Welcome to South West Dorset Multicultural Network

The South West Dorset Multicultural Network (SWDMCN) aims to end the isolation felt by people from Black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds in South West Dorset.

The South West Dorset Multicultural Network will do this by promoting positive relationships between people from a diverse range of cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds, living or working in South West Dorset, and taking steps to proactively address any incidents of racism or harassment reported to us.




The Dorset One World Festival is a free local event to celebrate the diversity of cultures in Dorchester through music, dance, food and activities.

The event will be held on Saturday 10th August from 11am-4pm at the Borough Gardens in Dorchester and will feature a programme of both traditional and modern cultural activities performed by local communities.

The Global Food Village will provide a wide selection of fresh food and drinks from around the world.

In addition there will be arts and entertainments, including a bouncy castle, to involve all the family.

We hope that people will join with us to enjoy what will be a stimulating, entertaining and informative day.
