Hundreds Flock to Expo
29 September 2016
A sea of orange Wunan balloons, Choose Your Future face tattoos and #WUNAN stickers were a feature of our inaugural Expo in July, as more than 350 local people and families flocked to the grounds of Wunan in Kununurra.
Fun activities, face painting, competitions and a free feed of kangaroo stew, rice and damper were on offer, as well as a range of stalls showcasing Wunan’s full range of programs, services and social enterprises.
Wunan CEO Christian Zahra said the Expo was designed to let the local community, particularly Aboriginal people, know about the full range of programs and services Wunan offers across the East Kimberley.
“Wunan has grown significantly in the past 18 months – we’ve gone from just under 50 staff to almost 100 and we’re particularly proud that the percentage of Indigenous staff working with us has grown to over 60 per cent.”
“Given this growth, and the increase in the number of programs Wunan now delivers, we felt it was important to make sure that local community members know what programs are available and how they can access them,” Christian said.
