Saturday, 28 November 2015
Time: 11am – 5pm

Celebration Day of Acceptance + Respect is the culmination of Space2b’s 100 Stripey Monkeys program, a community inclusion project that has involved newly arrived migrants and community members working together over the past six months to make stripey monkeys from recycled materials.
