Decade Of Diversity Family Event
This family-friendly event celebrates organisations and individuals from all backgrounds who have worked together over the last ten years to make our community a better place to live for all.
The free event has been organised by the Nunsmoor Centre on Studley Terrace in Arthur’s Hill, and will feature food, music, dance, arts and crafts, environmental activities and information about what’s going on our community. All are welcome, but children under 8 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
It will be opened by Kema Sikazwe, who played ‘China’ in last year’s film hit ‘I, Daniel Blake’ and who is otherwise known as rapper Kema Kay. Kema credits his rise to fame to his involvement with the area’s CHAT Trust, which helped support and foster his early musical talent.
The CHAT Trust is just one of the local organisations which will be supporting the Decade of Diversity event. Others are the Time Exchange, Greening Wingrove, The Angelou Centre, Newcastle University Students’ Union, Sure Start, Newcastle Age UK, Footsteps Children’s Services, the Community Foundation and Newcastle City Council.
