It’s time to stand, enjoy and dance to celebrate Refugee Week this June. In celebration, Playford is hosting a free Multicultural Youth Concert this Saturday to showcase the richness of diversity in the north.
The family-friendly event at Northern Sound System on Saturday, 23 June will feature music from Omer Mamba Difenda, DyspOra, Bhutanese Ethnic School and more.
There will be plenty of activities and a free dinner to enjoy while soaking in the atmosphere.
Northern Health Network said Refugee Week aims to create better understanding between different communities.
“It aims to encourage successful integration enabling refugees to live in safety and to continue making a valuable contribution to Australia,” the Network said.
With a growing population, the City of Playford continues to welcome new arrivals and citizens - with more than 21 per cent of locals born overseas.
“The northern suburbs such as Playford have become a home of many families and individuals from refugee backgrounds,” the Network said.
“This Multicultural Youth Concert is a unique opportunity for people living in the northern area to experience and celebrate the rich diversity of refugee communities through music and dance.”
All are welcome to celebrate Refugee Week at Northern Sound System on Saturday, 23 June, 3pm to 7pm.
