Taste of Persia

The Taste of Persia festival carries a dual purpose, seeking to not only showcase the venerable and opulent heritage of Persian food culture but also to extend its reach and appeal to diverse nationalities. This celebration serves as a cultural ambassador, inviting people from various backgrounds to immerse themselves in the intricacies of Iranian culinary traditions. By providing a platform for the exploration of the ancient and rich tapestry of Persian flavors, the festival aspires to foster cross-cultural understanding and appreciation. Beyond cultural exchange, the event also serves as a catalyst for promoting the businesses, creating opportunities for local vendors and entrepreneurs to showcase their offerings, thereby contributing to the broader economic landscape. The Taste of Persia festival emerges as a vibrant tapestry of cultural exchange and economic promotion, intertwining the essence of Persian cuisine with the spirit of entrepreneurship.

Women Life Freedom Public Event

As spring returns after every winter, the bright days of our beautiful Iran are sure to appear also. Until that day, we will neither sit idly, nor give up on the dream of freedom for our people. 

On Thursday, September 28, we will stand together for “Woman, life, freedom”. We will in unity and solidarity, raise our voices again demanding justice and human rights for our people.

In our journey our loyal friends continue to stand with us and as always, we will have some of our respected community and political leaders present in show of support for our cause.

Additionally, as the advocates for human rights globally, Amnesty International Australia have continually exposed violations of human rights in Iran, especially against women and girls.  On the anniversary of the death of Mahsa Jian Amini, Australian Iranian Society of Victoria (AISOV) is proud to have partnered with Amnesty International Australia to further advocate for and celebrate the resilience of those fighting gender apartheid and oppression in Iran.

Please feel free to bring your children as there will also be an art and craft booth for them, an information booth, and a registration booth for volunteers for future events. We also urge you to bring a friend or two to help us amplify the voices of our fellow Iranians who are fearless and resolute in their efforts.

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday, September 28th from 5 to 7 PM at Piazza Italia.

NowRuz at Victoria Parliament

NowRuz Celebration at Victoria Parliament 28/03/2023

Nowruz is the Persian New Year, which begins on the spring equinox in the Northern hemisphere, marking the first day of Farvardin, the first month of the Iranian solar calendar. It is celebrated worldwide by more than 350 million people from various ethnolinguistic groups and falls on or around March 21 of the Gregorian calendar.

The Australian Iranian Society of Victoria has been celebrating Nowruz in Melbourne for many years with the aim of introducing Melburnians to Iranian culture. While we used to have a special Nowruz Dinner for Iranian residents of Melbourne, AISOV has held three Nowruz events in Parliament specifically for the multicultural community leaders and policymakers in Victoria.
However, this year’s Nowruz in Parliament was different.

AISOV held this important day with a special commemoration of Iran’s current situation and the Women, Life, Freedom movement theme. 

Our distinguished guests listened to several speeches by AISOV’s management committee and parliamentary representatives, including Hon. Natalie Hutchins with a message from Premier Daniel Andrews and Leader of Opposition John Pesutto. Also, Senator Claire Chandler, Shadow Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs, sent us a statement that was read by the MC. We wrapped up this event with a heartfelt speech by Ms. Ann-Marie Hermans MP.
Nowruz 2023 at Parliament was graced with the performances of some talented Iranian artists. Through their captivating music, enchanting dance, and thought-provoking short play, they beautifully conveyed the powerful themes of women, life, and freedom. It was an extraordinary experience for all who were lucky enough to witness it.
