Kapiti Coast libraries celebrate Race Relations Day

Kapiti Coast District Libraries are joining together to celebrate cultural diversity by being part of the Earth Family Project initiated by Wellington Public Libraries in 2005.

“We’re inviting children and their families to create representations of themselves in clay, symbolising that we are all made in the same way, even if we look different on the outside,” Kapiti Libraries Manager, Leslie Clague said.

The event will take place in Paraparaumu and Otaki library next Saturday March 21 between 10.00am and 12 noon.

“People can make their own clay figures.  These will be displayed in the library gardens.”

“It’s a way for people to get involved in Race Relations Day, let’s them get their hands dirty and try to turn a piece of clay into a piece of art that symbolises our cultural diversity.

“Let’s see how many earth people we can make on the Kapiti Coast and play our part in Race Relations Day,” Mrs. Clague said.
