Nic Manikis has been a great strength and assistance for the multicultural communities in ACT. His retirement will certainly create a vacuum. FINACT salutes and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.
“The wildly successful National Multicultural Festival, which he inaugurated in 1997, is definitely his most high profile achievement, having grown from two trestle tables at CIT in Reid into a huge event that attracted 280,000 revellers this year with 4500 volunteers, 463 stalls and nine stages.”
Nic was always available for help, contribute or grace the event with much enthusiasm and understanding of the occasion. Multicultural community will miss you….
