Dunedin Multi-Ethnic Council – Celebrating Diversity

The theme for Race Relations Day 2022 is:

Whiria te muka tāngata – Flourishing interwoven communities of Aotearoa New Zealand.

This is centred around connecting and weaving people together. This is to signify the importance of bringing people together, building harmonious relations especially during the pandemic and the separation many people are currently experiencing.

DMEC would like to thank all of our sponsors and supporters for making Dunedin Race Relations Week possible
