Seen at Micah Projects’ 2013 Close The Gap Day event.

You’re invited to join local community organisation Micah Projects in celebrating Close The Gap Day in Boundary Street, West End, on Thursday 20th March, 2014 between 11 am and 2 pm.

There will be a range of informative and educational material highlighting the gap in life expectancy – and other benchmarks – between Indigenous people and the greater community.

Representatives from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) organisations will be on hand to answer your questions, and a Welcome to Country will be performed by a local Elder.

There will be kids’ activities and a hands-on art project where well-wishers will be invited to express their support visually for Closing the Gap. A petition will also be available for guests and passers by to sign.

Phil Dennis,  indigenous Rugby League player and Captain of Souths RLFC, who recently featured prominently in the Goannas side, will be there.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Close the Gap Day stalwarts Rod Tyson, Jenny Pineapple and Dario Western, and the students of Mt Maria’s College will provide a healthy barbeque.

11am – 2pm
Peoples Park, Boundary Street
