Things to do
Covid19 has reminded us of the importance of societal rites of passage, as weddings and funerals made the headlines with restrictions. Ceremonies and rituals provide communities with a sense of belonging to something bigger, they unite us through a common identity, and shared experience. They provide structure in our lives, connect the community, and remind us of our values, cultural heritage and the key milestones of people’s lives, which bond us together and bring rhythm to our year.
Join us with a panel of four speakers from diverse cultural backgrounds with presentations on how different cultures celebrate these significant life events. Come and hear about what we have in common and gain insights into unique cultural differences.
