Cultural diversity to be celebrated

Hindmarsh Shire Council and West Wimmera Health Service are working together to celebrate Cultural Diversity Week in 2019.
The theme of this year’s event, from March 16 to 24 is ‘Proud to Belong – Your Story, Your Generation’.
Hindmarsh mayor Ron Ismay said the week was a way of celebrating multiculturalism and diversity.
“We extend an invitation to members of the community to share their story on multicultural heritage and identity,” he said.
“This program will be delivered in a similar method to the highly successful and well received ‘Faces of Hindmarsh’ project.
“Cultural Diversity Week is a fantastic way to celebrate the everyday diversity of Victorians and reflect on what gives us all a sense of belonging in our multicultural community.”
Cr Ismay said Hindmarsh Shire was home to at least 29 different nationalities.
“Almost half of Victorians were either born overseas or have at least one parent who was born overseas,” he said.
People seeking more information about or are keen to take part in the event can email community development officer Michelle Farinha at or refugee community health nurse Casey Hiscock at before Sunday.
