Unity will host a series of tenant spring parties in October to celebrate 10 years of Unity but importantly, the tenants who create the Unity community. The events are a free, fun day out and will include activities such as a raffle, art classes, face painting and a book swap.
This year we are shaking things up a bit, with a number of interactive activities to start up conversations, generate ideas and foster collaboration, with a focus on culture, all ages and abilities.
Our partners, including Life Without Barriers and Campbell Page, along with our newly created partnerships with ACH Group and Trinity Medical Centre Pharmacy will be joining us on the day by facilitating come and try activities such as a yarning circle, a drum beat session, developing a collaborative art piece using a recycled door, health checks and information about health pathways, and Tai Chi.
We are looking for tenants to share their talents and skills at these events, whether it be through song, art, craft, exercises or activities, and are taking submissions up until mid-September. As a thank you, tenants will also receive five extra tickets to the free raffle. If you would like to be involved: Adelaide tenants phone Justyna on 8205 3600 and Limestone Coast tenants phone Ant on 8724 4109.
