Refugee and migrant communities celebrate NAIDOC

Settlement Services International (SSI), in partnership with Kinchela Boys Home, is celebrating NAIDOC at the SSI Community Kitchen on July 10.

 

Through this event, we will aim to encourage respectful intercultural dialogue and exchange by fostering understanding and curiosity between Aboriginal and refugee and migrant communities. To do this, we will host activities including a yarning circle, a smoking ceremony, boomerang painting, and damper making.  

 

This event is proudly funded by Cumberland Council.
