Celebrating Many Cultures, One Earth - FREE Event

Friday 12th of February
Exploring Rituals & Ceremonies at Weddings & Funerals



The City of Marion invites you to join 'Celebrating Many Cultures, One Earth', an enlightening FREE community event exploring how four different cultures celebrate significant life events.

In 2020, COVID-19 and social gathering restrictions saw the sudden cancellation of many meaningful and monumental life events in our lives, including weddings and funerals.

Such important ceremonies and rituals provide communities with a sense of belonging to something bigger as they unite us through a common identity and shared experiences. They provide structure in our lives, connect the community and remind us of our values, cultural heritage and the societal rites of passage, which bond us together and bring rhythm to our year.

COVID-19 kept us apart but it also showed us what we all have in common. Come along to 'Celebrating Many Cultures, One Earth' and gain a unique insight into Australia's multicultural communities.

'Celebrating Many Cultures, One Earth', held on Saturday 13 February, from 2.00pm at Domain Theatre, Marion Cultural Centre, will feature a panel of four speakers from diverse cultural backgrounds.

The speakers include:

Rosemary Wanganeen

A proud Aboriginal Australian woman from South Australia of Kaurna, Wirrangu, Koogatha and English heritage and CEO of the Australian Institute for Loss and Grief

Dr Amal Chakraborty BCom, MSD, PhD

Bangladesh Community Representative and Flinders University Researcher

Ms Shal Chan

Teacher, artist, owner of Earthy Arts with a passion in clay crafting, Shal originates from the multicultural country of Malaysia.

Luis Arriola

Active member of the Latin American community and Director of Tutor Doctor, an in-home education tutoring services in Adelaide.
