Nelson Multicultural Council and Victoria University are undertaking some research to look at the growing diversity of Nelson Tasman. More than 20% of the people in this region were born overseas and Nelson has the third highest percentage of people born overseas for any region in New Zealand after Auckland and Wellington. New migrants in the region bring a diversity and vibrancy which creates an even richer mix of people in this area. We are interested to talk with them about their experience – to find out what is going well and to see how anything could be made easier as they settle in to their new home. The next workshop will be held at Tahunanui Community Centre, 61 Muratai Street, Nelson on Saturday, 7 October from 10am to 2pm with lunch provided. If you would like to attend, please contact Brigid Ryan, Ph. 5402321 or 021400718. Email is [email protected]
Have you ever found out about a fun or life-changing course… only to find out it finished weeks ago?
Well, the new Nelson/Tasman Adult Education Facebook group aims to stop that!
It’s a place to share upcoming courses, programmes, seminars and learning opportunities.
A bit like the community noticeboards we have dotted around our region. Only on Facebook, because that’s where we all are.
Once it’s humming, you’ll have notices popping up in your news feed about all sorts of exciting things. Yoga courses. Cooking classes. Business workshops. Knitting classes.
You name it, there’s probably a course for it around here!
So give the group a JOIN today. Here’s the magic link >>>>>>> https://www.facebook.com/groups/476755049360268/
We would also LOVE it if you spread the word to friends, family, whānau and other education providers. A Facebook group is only as good as its members!
At the moment, the group is being promoted by the good folks at Adult Learning Support. If you’re keen to help make it work, flick them a message on Facebook at www.facebook.com/adultlearningsupport.
