Midland: An inclusive community.
To promote, encourage, share and sustain cultural awareness throughout Midland.
What can we learn from other cultures, ethnicities and points of view? How do we embrace the diversity in the world?
The answers to these questions lie within the cultural diversity of our own community and is demonstrated through the Cultural Awareness Committee.
The Cultural Awareness Committee has formulated a “business plan” based on the surveys and the Forum with three main thrusts:
Develop an effective network among the Midland area community groups involved with cultural awareness. This would feature communications, periodic forums and public relations.
Move forward on top priority community projects. Enhancing cultural awareness among school children was identified by the Forum as the highest priority. Additionally, the Committee will continue to support the Diversity Walk and MCTV programs.
Provide grants and other funding in support of selected community projects.
Midland has a unique opportunity with its strong local diversity. By improving our awareness of the different cultural groups here, we will be able to better understand our increasingly complex world.
