Mini Festival Brings Samoan Community Together

Celebrations commemorating Samoa's independence were used as a means to reunite the Samoan community In Christchurch and discuss issues of the day.

A mini festival in early June included cultural performances and workshops on topics such as strengthening families and closing the gaps for Samoans in Christchurch.

The event, which was organised by the Ministers' Fraternal Group, received support from Community Employment.

Community Employment adviser Maria Godinet-Watts says the festival was a means of building the community's capacity and bringing key players together. Maria provided planning advice to the organising group.
