Istage was founded in 2013 by Mrs. Maria McCarthy of ISS to help form support groups for students who come from other countries. Pursuant to that tradition, this group still remains the happy-to-help group of supporters for any student in need. They offer various workshops that they hope will help make a fellow student’s day marginally better. Their workshop are mostly cultural, since the members of the team are themselves quite multicultural – The President, an Indian; The Secretary, a Sri Lankan; The Treasurer, an Indonesian. They encourage all members from different cultural backgrounds to come and help them in their workshops or perform or simply be part of it. Their end goal is to make fellow QUT-ians feel that they belong here.
