Sell-out in every venue, the local integrated schools invite you to the largest gathering showcasing and celebrating diversity in local life. Food from different cultures and traditions, shared and served by families from all over the world who have made this place their home, followed by music, dance and words to welcome and enthral.
Who do you think you are?
Where do you come from?
Where are we going?
What does your place, my place look like?
These are just some of the questions we ask while joyfully celebrating the wonderful mix of all that we are in this city and community. Based on the model started in Oakgrove Primary school, the evening follows a day of discussion hosted by students of Oakgrove Integrated College exploring questions of identity in our city, allowing us to explore together. Young people reaching out to those who are different lead us in showing ways to work and play together.
To young and old from near and far, this evening is the first chapter in the new story of our city: one city, one community, on a shared journey to a better place. Relax, savour the tastes, sights and sounds of our multicultural city and enjoy an exhilarating evening to reaffirm the warmth and richness of local life.
These events are part of a series ‘Steps to a Culture of Peace’ which marks 21 years of Oakgrove Integrated College.
