Hume city council celebrated the municipality’s rich and diverse culture for Refugee Week at the Global Learning Centre in Craigieburn on Tuesday, June 21.

There was a smoking ceremony to start the day as a welcome to country, followed by a talent show where locals were able to showcase their culture through an art medium of their choice.

Poetry, spoken word and drumming were some of the acts performed at the talent show.

Lunch was also provided and children were kept entertained with a number of activities.
