This year NCNS celebrated its first Harmony Day with a Community Feast at our Cranebrook Neighbourhood Centre. Harmony Day was an open invitation to all community members to come and celebrate the cultural diversity of our local area. Every person that attended the feast, brought with them a plate of food that represents their culture, resulting in a tasty spread of assorted cuisines.
Along with sharing delicious food, local community groups performed traditional dances including the Pacific Island Dance Troupe, the Filipino Dancers Group, the Maltese Line Dance Group and Katherine, a belly dancer from Ghawazi Caravan. It was great to see so many different cultures coming together to celebrate. We loved seeing community members get involved and having a go at the different styles of dance. We would like to thank you all for performing at our event and representing your culture.
We were thrilled to see from our feedback forms that 100% of people that attended this event, felt a sense of belonging and inclusion, enjoying the event so much that they indicated that they wanted this to become a yearly celebration. Across the board everyone that attended had an amazing day, created new friendships and formed secure partnerships with our organisation.
