Cultural Campfires have become a community favourite over the summer months. Each week on Thursday at 7PM in Shikaoi Park, storytellers share stories from an array of cultural backgrounds around the campfire. It is a place where culture can be shared, understanding can be built, and connections can be nourished.

The campfires are designed not just to entertain community but to build community understanding, acceptance, and compassion.

LISTEN to stories from around the world,
CONNECT with people in our community.
