A GROUP of Warrnambool students want to bring the varied groups and people who make up the wider south-west community closer together.
A Connecting Multicultural and Diverse Communities Day planned for next Friday is the result of their studies in community services.
“There are all sorts of cultures and communities in Warrnambool and the south-west,” organising committee spokesperson Sally Trigg said.
“We want to being them all together in one place and link them in with the different services available.
“We aren’t just focusing on different cultures in term of ethnicity.
“We are looking at diverse communities in the area as well. It may be hearing impaired, vision impaired or even young people who have their own community in a way.
“It’s targeting everyone really.”
Ms Trigg said Friday’s event would feature cultural dance demonstrations, food and drink from around the world, community service information, guest speakers and children’s activities.
“We hope that food, drink, music and dance will help get everyone along to have a fun afternoon.”
The Connecting Multicultural and Diverse Communities day will be held at the Brophy Community and Youth Complex in Timor Street between 4pm and 8pm on Friday, April 11.
