Council will help celebrate Welcoming Week with a free event at Space2b Social Design on Thursday 15 September with food by Flavours of Syria and music by John Wayne Parsons.
This event will celebrate Council’s signing of a Statement of Commitment to Welcoming Cities. The Statement was endorsed by Council earlier this year and was an initiative of Council’s Multicultural Advisory Committee.
Welcoming Cities is a network of more than 250 municipalities around the world which shares knowledge, creates partnerships, and celebrates success.
The network assists local governments to achieve their social cohesion objectives and supports councils to build communities where everyone can belong by participating in social, cultural, economic and civic life.
Welcoming Week is an initiative of the Welcoming Cities network which supports councils to build communities where everyone can belong and participate in social, cultural, economic and civic life.
Welcoming Week 2022 focuses on the places and spaces that foster belonging such as our cities, workplaces, neighbourhoods, schools and places of worship.
