One Sheffield Many Cultures are seeking support from trade unions and other similar organisations for
its second multicultural festival in Barkers Pool Sheffield on Saturday 19 May 2012.
The festival theme is 'Celebrating Multicultural' Sheffield, and will feature music and dance by school students from across the city. The event will be opened by the new Lord Mayor, Cllr John Campbell.
OSMC promotes the unity of the city. The events and publicity organised by OSMC celebrate the contribution by people from all communities and backgrounds to the well being of Sheffield.
They also celebrate Sheffield’s proud tradition of opposition to racism, bigotry and prejudice. They urge people from all walks of life in the city to speak with one voice in support of One Sheffield Many Cultures.
OSMC supporters include: Sheffield Faith Leaders, Islamic Society of Britain, Hope Not Hate, Sheffield BME Network, The Northern Refugee Centre, Unite Against Fascism, and Love Music Hate Racism.
OSMC is also requesting trade unions, faith groups and others for donations towards the cost of the festival. We are anticipating that the cost of the event will be about £3500.
Donors will get city wide publicity and also a stall on the day.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further information about OSMC.
