Marco Polo Project
is a cross-cultural education design agency
based in Melbourne, Australia.
Our methods and workshops help learners from diverse languages and cultures harness the power of conversation to build new connections, make sense of their own cultural tradition, and engage in new forms of collective experience.
We design and deliver programs for schools, universities and communities. Our programs address systemic dysfunctions in culturally diverse environments, and equip participants with tools and mindsets to better interact in unfamiliar settings.
We also design and deliver tailored programs and workshops for groups and organisations facing a specific challenge related to language and/or cultural diversity, with a particular focus on China.
Design for Diversity
A program for senior high-school students, using design thinking to better integrate international students to the school community.
Out of the Box
A program for international students that equips them with the tools and mindsets to take full advantage of their time at university as a time of personal experimentation and discovery, and better engage with the local environment
Marco Polo Project is currently supporting the development of a cutting-edge program that aims to help culturally diverse teams collaborating through technology enhance their communication processes.
Here are some of the main organisations we have partnered with.
