Bring your flag to the King's Coronation
Bring your flag to the King’s Coronation was a project we ran to celebrate King Charles lll’s Coronation. We appreciate and celebrate the multicultural society in the UK so we wanted everyone to join in and dress in their national dress so as to bring out the diversity themeFor this, we practiced muchongoyo cultural dance from April until the 6th of May. This was a befitting activity to celebrate whilst linking ourselves to our culture and how we celebrate important occasions. This is also about heritage and passing on our culture. Our main aim as Power of the Mind networks is to bring people together and share stories. People share stories in different ways like dance and music and sharing their lived experiences. Zuwa shared about mental health.
Through this event, we tackled social isolation and enabled people to come together and celebrate as a group. Friendship bonds were formed and it is our custom we also had yummy food of African origin at the event. We openly discussed nurturing our children and how we can support each other as a community.
