Greater Shepparton’s Syrian community will take over the Mall from 10am-2pm, showcasing some of their traditional clothing, music, food and drinks including their much-loved kebabs and falafel wraps.
The new initiative has made a successful start in 2019, with the region’s Malaysian, Iraqi and Filipino communities taking the opportunity to showcase their culture.
Shepparton’s Nedal Kebabs will be representing the Syrian community, so of course, there will be food and drink will be available for purchase. All residents are encouraged to go along and engage with their culture.
The aim of Culture Corner is to create a buzz and atmosphere within the Mall by highlighting Greater Shepparton’s diversity.
More than 14 per cent of Greater Shepparton’s residents identify as being born overseas, and Culture Corner is another example of Council’s dedication to the region’s multiculturalism.
“The people of Greater Shepparton come from all over the world, and we are proud to say that,” Council’s Multiculturalism Development Officer Mr Sarmed Yassin said.
“Culture Corner is about showcasing one particular culture at a time to everyone and anyone in Greater Shepparton.
“We want people from every culture to experience new things, get involved, celebrate our region’s diversity and have some fun with it.”
Culture Corner takes place in the Maude Street Mall on the first Saturday of every month and showcases the region’s numerous cultures.
