We are thrilled to announce that Afaf Al-Shammari has been retained as our first Community Development Worker.
Thanks to the financial support of Multicultural NSW, Afaf will work alongside Jane Stratton, our Executive Director, in the Green Valley Postcode to promote participation in our programming by local residents, and Arabic speaking residents in particular.
Afaf began her connection with us by answering some survey questions, helping us to learn more about affordability of food and how local people used cars and public transport in the 2168 Postcode Area.
Later, she joined us to make a film about her connection to 2168 and her reflections on the need for people to learn how to break down the perception of difference. Watch it here!
We welcome Afaf warmly, and encourage community members to be in contact with her at:
