Deakin University is enriched by the cultural diversity of its staff, students and wider community. We strive to ensure that our culture respects, values and actively pursues the benefits of diversity across the University and that our communities share this appreciation and respect.
This year, Deakin University is proud to host the Eid Festival in partnership with the Australian Intercultural Society.
The Eid and Cultural Festival at Deakin University
4-6 pm Thursday 23 August 2012
Sports Hall, Level 2, Building HB
Deakin University Melbourne Burwood Campus.
The Eid Festival marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. It is a joyous celebration for Muslims and an opportunity for the wider community to gain a greater understanding of Islam. It is an occasion to reflect on our rich cultural diversity and embrace the beauty of the many traditions and religions that make up our community.
Festival activities will include a variety of traditional and cultural performances from the Albanian, Bosnian, Indonesian and Turkish communities in Melbourne, art and food.
The Eid Festival is just one of many events celebrating our diversity. Deakin also fosters spiritual life on campus through its multi-faith spiritual centre which brings together students and staff from a range of religions and faiths.
