Voyage the Pasifika with Us - 2021 (Digital Event)

COVID – 19 did not allow our communities come together to celebrate our cultures in the way we prefer – face to face, so the next best thing was being able to do so via technology and digitally the best we could.

From our regional Victoria community of Pasifika, here are some highlights captured in still motion for you to enjoy.

Pasifika Showcase 2016

After a 10 week program learning to reconnect with your Samoan heritage in regional Victoria and sharing in such learning with their peers it was time to share with families and friends and the whole community.
