This project was funded on 31 Aug 2018!

The project is an multicultural event which will take place in Crawley's Memorial Gardens. We will section of the gardens to mimic the world map with Africa in one area, Asia in another and Europe etc. We will have at least 2 stalls in each continent to show that there are many different people who come from one continent and they can't all be associated with the same persona. We will set up food stalls as food is one thing that brings everyone together; we will have traditional foods from the countries. We will put on dance performances to showcase the talent we have in Crawley. We will hold activities to get people involved such as making masks etc. Another thing is we want to have on display some visual aids to show how different one country looks in a variety of towns and cities to help remould peoples perceptions.

What we'll deliver:

  • Performances from different cultures
  • Food from different cultures
  • Art from different cultures
  • Interactive activities

Why it's a great idea:

In recent events there has been a rise in racism within the UK. I do not think we will ever be able to completely get rid of racism at this moment in time and with this amount of people. However we underplay the importance of education. I think that the reason we have ignorance and micro aggression is because we haven't learnt enough about the different cultures and ethnicities; it is said that you fear what you do not know which is why these issues arise. Due to this I am proposing that we hold an event where we can help overcome these barriers by learning more about the people of Crawley and their backgrounds. I think it is also important to get the youth involved in this project which is why I am doing this through the youth council as it gives them something to do and sheds a good light on them in the eyes of the public which is another thing that is very necessary.

Steps to get it done:

  • I will pay for the cost of renting out the gardens
  • I will contact local schools to help make posters for the event
  • Contact local cultural groups to get involved

The host of the event will be the new Youth Mayor of Crawley who is a part of the Crawley Young Persons Council (CYPC).
