Kiwis On Board – Auckland 23/1/16
SPECIAL CONCERT TO WELCOME REFUGEE SETTLEMENT IN NZ
60 million people in the world have no place to call home.
4.5 million of them are Syrians
Imagine if every New Zealander was forced to flee our country.
Kiwis On Board and Diva the Agency are thrilled to welcome the first of 650 Syrian refugees to arrive on our shores in 2016, with an amazing line-up of New Zealand artists performing at Auckland’s Silo Park.
Featuring live performances from Neil Finn, the Topp Twins, Hopetoun Brown, Thomas Oliver, the Jubilation Choir and more to be announced, this will be an evening to remember. For many refugees this will be the first time they’ve felt safe in a long long time. So come and join the Warmest Kiwi Welcome Ever!
Bring blankets, banners and a picnic to Silo park at 5pm on January 23rd. The concert will finish at 8pm.
$20 Koha is requested which can be paid in cash on the day or via a special Give A Little page created to support the re-settlement of these refugees www.givealittle.co.nz/cause/kiwisonboard
Silo Park is the perfect waterfront location for this special occasion. With regular community activity in the area, it is a public place where stories come together, where people share, socialise, or just sit and be. Silo Park’s weekly markets will be open from midday, with street food and cold drinks pouring from the Silo Park bar.
ALL proceeds raised will go to NZ RED CROSS.
Special thanks to Fresh Concept and Silo Park for their support.
