I attended a Multicultural Refugee event at Alexandria Town Hall today.
Launch of Refugee African Muslim Youth Project Book
16 July 2010, 1.00pm
South Sydney Community Aid and Multicultural Neighbourhood Centre, Alexandria Town Hall, 73 Garden St, Alexandria
The Refugee African Muslim Youth (RAMY) project, funded by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, is working with African Muslim communities to encourage more active participation in sporting, social, arts-based, and other activities as a way of promoting their inclusion in mainstream society. The RAMY book documents the project, telling the stories in first-person accounts of a range of participants’ experiences involved in hip-hop, African dance, drawing, painting, sculpture and photography among many different activities undertaken by the participants. Federal MP for Sydney and Minister for Housing and the Status of Women, Tanya Plibarsek will officially launch the book and RCOA board member Sky de Jersey will speak at the event.
