Breaking Bread Together

The Australia Day 2019 art activity is about the power of food to build bridges between communities by sharing meals and recipes.

Sohail Yamin, a local City of Casey artist, is again driving this community engagement activity to get people from diverse communities to be involved. On the day he will have an artwork people will engage with and the theme is about Breaking Bread Together. The "Breaking Bread Together' art activity will include four panels with an overall dimension of 2.4m x 1.2m. The brightly colored artwork signifies foods journey from sea, land and air to our plates, with white outline images showing various types of foods (including some bush tucker) and the word 'food' written in different languages. People will be invited to write their favourite dish and sign on the day. The recipe card will be printed beforehand and distributed to those who attend so they can take a recipe home and hopefully get to make the dish so they can experience food from different cultures.

Hello Community Friends,

Hope you are all keeping well and busy with work, life and community activities and projects.
Once again thank you to those who responded and positively contributed to a fun and inclusive Australia Day Celebration in past years.

If you could not join us then due to other commitments another opportunity is now knocking at your door.

The Cultural Historical Association of Rodriguans and Mauritians in Victoria (CHARM), a Not for Profit community group based in the City of Casey will once again host the Australia Day event at Balla Balla Community Centre Cranbourne in 2019.

The Australia Day event is proudly supported by the City of Casey and will be one of five key events in the municipality.

CHARM is now seeking Expressions of Interest for your involvement and participation in an inclusive celebration for Australia Day 2019.

We would like to give individuals, groups and businesses within the City of Casey and/or South Eastern suburbs an opportunity to be involved in this inclusive Australia Day Celebration.

If you:
• perform (sing, dance, play an instrument), paint, draw, face paint, play family friendly games or have any other ideas about safe kids activities
• exhibit historical information about your origins
• promote your community group/social/cultural/sporting activities
• showcase/prepare traditional food
• can donate door prizes, samples or support this event in any other way
• can volunteer your time and talent

This initiative could be one of many that consolidates and strengthens the ties that link us together in our local community.

It is indeed a great opportunity for community members to work in collaboration to plan, organize and stage this inclusive community celebration.

The event will be a free event for the entire family and all members of the community.

Please help us:
• showcase our community’s strengths in many areas including the arts and culture and more
• share how we each contribute to multicultural Casey and celebrate together what is great about being Australian and/or living in Australia.
We look forward to your positive responses, please contact us by Friday 16 November 2018.

Take Care and Keep up the great work
