Dunedin Youth Council Race Unity
Do you want to have your say in Dunedin’s future perception of race and prejudice – and be fed for it? Dunedin Youth Council invites you to Race Unity in the Art Gallery from 4-6 pm. We will have speeches, cultural performances and open discussions on race. DYC is super keen to hear your perspective, and we’d love to celebrate diversity by creating a unified atmosphere in Dunedin’s youth.
