Diverse representation is expected with notable representatives from international interests, Indigenous Australians, Members of Parliament – Federal, state, local, business leaders, academics, NGO representatives, religious and spiritual leaders, migrants from refugee backgrounds to children of local institutions to attend with one message of peace, harmony and inclusivity. GSML Chairman, Jim Varghese AM said: “Today we need to nurture leadership which mobilises our diverse communities towards a shared goal embracing the Gandhi’s plea for a society built on peace trust and inclusiveness.” In the three years since launching the inaugural Power of Peace Festival in 2016, the event has grown from strength to strength and the theme has never been more relevant. This free day, will showcase a range of multicultural activities and performances from the drums of peace, from the African Djembe (meaning – coming together) and the Bhangra – the vibrant free-spirited dance of the farmers at the harvest from Punjab – to a moderated dialogue on Fostering Unity through Ethics in Business and Politics with distinguished representatives from business, politics, religion and community.
