- Australia-Africa Week runs until September 7
- Annual week-long event celebrates WA African communities and Africa-Australia relations
The week is also a fascinating chance
to discover a taste of the cultures, skills and business activities of
many Western Australian communities from African backgrounds.
around the Africa Down Under Conference, Australia-Africa Week features
events and activities that explore the economic and cultural links
between African countries and WA.
The State Government,
through a partnership between the Commonwealth Bank and the Office of
Multicultural Interests, is supporting the Australia-Africa Trade and
Cultural Expo which will showcase African Australian small businesses
and cultural demonstrations.
The expo, taking place at
Yagan Square on September 6 and 7, will feature two sensational
flash-mob dances following on the success of last year's event.
Other events over Australia-Africa Week include university seminars, discussion panels, social functions and community events.
Australia is home to more than 101,200 Africa-born people, which makes
up about 4.1 per cent of the State's total population.
