More than 500 artists, community members, young people and their families came together for a spectacular NAIDOC family day to celebrate culture and diversity at Kalgoorlie PCYC this month.
The event featured cultural dancing, face painting, a petting zoo, lots of arts and crafts and bouncy castles for local youth to enjoy. The family day also saw impressive performances by hip-hop artists following a three day hip-hop workshop.
Kalgoorlie PCYC Centre Manager Brian Enad commented that the day was a huge success and a fantastic opportunity to help bring the entire community together for the city’s young people.
“NAIDOC week, and especially our NAIDOC family day was absolutely amazing.”
“We wanted it to be all about the kids so we pushed for all the stores to have a fun child-based theme.”
