Roaming Rainbow Project will showcase poems, short stories and decorated desks and chairs created by local young people to celebrate cultural diversity at Bankstown Arts Centre on 28th June.

Jointly run by Canterbury-Bankstown Council and Youth Off the Streets, this competition is a youth-led initiative that celebrates inclusiveness and cultural diversity with the aim of developing a sculpture using the competition entries. The stories will range from refugee experiences migrating to Australia and will demonstrate community harmony though the exhibition of creative talent and artistry of the young people involved.

The competition is open until Friday 2 June 2017, so it’s not too late to enter and share your story!

Located in Sydney’s south-western suburbs, Canterbury-Bankstown is one the most culturally diverse suburbs of Sydney with over 129 nationalities and nearly 200 languages represented by people living in this area, making Canterbury-Bankstown a vibrant, resourceful and resilient community.
