Dinka Culture Hub Gathering
You are invited to attend the Dinka Culture Hub Gathering at G Wigg Sports Centre, Radford College on Saturday, 17 November 2018.
The Culture Hub is a work-in-progress with the North Canberra Dinka (South Sudanese) diaspora community.
This intergenerational, intercultural project creates a ‘safe village’ environment for the Dinka to restore and maintain cultural practices. From here, members can share with and contribute to the larger Canberra community from a basis of their strengths as dancers, drummers, storytellers, athletes and agriculturalists.
