Experience Casey 2016

The 2016 Experience Casey event saw the premiere screening of a series of four short films that celebrate cultural diversity in Casey and were produced in partnership with a broad range of existing community organisations and individuals.  They demonstrate how our community is connecting with each other, participating in a whole range of activities and building a greater sense of belonging to their local community. 

The themes of the four short films were:

1. Meet - the possibilities of intercultural connection between established Casey residents and new migrants through an arts and cultural program

 

2. Eat - how intercultural understanding and connections can be achieved through socialising in the home and the love of food

3. Play - how young people can engage in, and influence, sports and youth engagement in Casey.

4. Work - how newly migrant entrepreneurs in Casey are focussing on intercultural connections in the workplace and with the local business community.
