The Joy of Many Colours Fashion & Cultural Show and Cultural Food Expo
We are delighted to invite you to support the upcoming public event, "The Joy of Many Colours," a Fashion & Cultural Show and Cultural Food Expo, organised by Connected Women Darwin group with the support of Australian Red Cross NT. The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 18th, 2023, from 3.00 pm to 7.00 pm at Charles Darwin University Theatre (Orange 3), Casuarina, and is FREE to the public.
The Australian Red Cross's Migration Support Programs is responsible for running Connected Women NT (Won The Fitzgeralds’ Diversity Award at NT Human Rights Awards 2022), a program that has been working tirelessly with refugees, migrants, and people seeking asylum for over 25 years. As part of this program, Red Cross NT organizes regular meetings for women from diverse background to connect with women from the wider community, including Aboriginal women.
The primary goal of these meetings is to provide a safe space for isolated migrant women to overcome social isolation, develop skills, and connect with the broader Australian community. The meetings take the form of various activities and workshops centred around specific areas of interest to the women. Whenever possible, the women themselves organize and lead these activities, with Red Cross playing a facilitating role.
The Fashion Show will be a celebration of cultural unity and diversity. It will showcase the talents of women from diverse backgrounds who have participated in workshops to create, upcycle, and repurpose items such as clothing and accessories. In addition to the fashion show, some participants will share performances that represent their culture and cultural identity. By highlighting the skills and cultural heritage of these women, the Fashion Show promotes inclusivity and understanding in the broader Australian community.
The Cultural Food Expo is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate cultural diversity and learn more about the culinary traditions of various countries and community groups. Each group will showcase their unique cultural heritage, sharing culinary information and serving up their delicious traditional cuisines to everyone for FREE.
This event promises to be an exciting and educational experience, giving attendees the chance to discover new flavours and explore the richness and diversity of different cultures. the Cultural Food Expo is a wonderful way to celebrate the richness of multiculturalism and the vibrancy of diverse communities.
Not only will attendees get to enjoy amazing food, but they can also look forward to a day filled with entertainment and fun activities suitable for the whole family, such as face painting, a kids' play area, a photobooth, and music.
We hope that you can join us in supporting this incredible event and help us celebrate the richness and diversity of our community.
