Gosford-Narara Neighbourhood Centre and Northern Settlement Services will hold a Refugee Day Breakfast at the Narara Neighbourhood Centre on Saturday, June 28.
Refugee Week has been celebrated in Australia since 1986 and provides a platform where positive images of refugees can be promoted in order to create a culture of welcome throughout the country. The ultimate aim is to facilitate better understanding between different communities and encourage successful integration, enabling refugees to live in safety and to continue making a valuable contribution to Australia. Refugee Week was inaugurated at Narara Community Centre last year and is an event sponsored jointly by Narara Community Centre and Northern Settlement Services.
Both organisations continue their multicultural focus on the positive role of refugees in the community in 2014. The day includes a free breakfast, music, documentary and a speech by Steven Turner from Amnesty International. “This is a unique opportunity for us all to experience and celebrate the rich diversity of refugee communities through theatre, music, dance, film and other educational or cultural events which take place all over Australia and highlight the aims of the week,” said Gosford-Narara Neighbourhood Centre manager Ms Jill Grosche.
