This time last week Canberra was celebrating the National Multicultural Festival which drew quite a lot of people. Being a fairly new ACT Labor member myself I helped out with the stall at the festival supporting ACT Labor. Whilst politics is not everyone’s cup of tea it does play a role in our everyday life whether at the local, state, or federal level. One of the things I like about the Multicultural Festival is that it reminds me that we are a nation of people who have made Australia their home. It also shows that the first Australians also have a unique history and one that has not been managed too well since colonisation.
It was good to see a whole range of cultures celebrating their backgrounds and displaying their food and craft items at their stalls which people could purchase.
The photo below shows me holding a large bunch of balloons which were advertising ACT Labor. They didn’t last too long as all the young kids and young parents came up and wanted one.
Have a great weekend 🙂
