Refugee Diversity Fashion Show is being organised by Hyson Green Cultural Festival, Fearless Youth Association, Nottingham Trent University and Mojatu Foundation in conjunction with other sponsors.
We will engage some refugees and asylum seekers in the planning, organising and implementing this one-day event which will entail a diversity fashion show by bringing together diverse communities to celebrate and showcase their rich diversity while celebrating friendship and life in Nottingham.
The aim of the FYA project is to improve relationships among young people from different ethnic and faith backgrounds around Nottingham. It will also support them in being active and visible in bringing groups and communities together, be creative, discuss issues and organise and implement events and activities, including online engagement.
It will help build friendships, trust and links among young people with similar interests irrespective of their differences in background, faith and attitudes, a thing that would otherwise not happen left to themselves. This will make the local area and neighbourhood safer and friendlier by making the young people more active and focused while making the project sustainable through skills attained, music and online contents produced and growth in interests and investment in music and entertainment.
