The RACE Darwin

25 June 2016

On 25 June 2016, MyNT held The RACE (The Racial and Cultural Experience). The idea of this ‘Amazing Race-style’ competition originally came from a group of young people chosen to participate at the 2015 Heywire Regional Youth Summit and MyNT is proud to have been given the opportunity to make this idea a reality. The project aims to bring together the many cultures woven into the community tapestry of the NT within a unique setting and break down the barriers created by cultural differences.
Just like the popular TV show, The Amazing Race, multiple different challenges were set up across Darwin city, with each challenge representing a different cultural group. Eleven teams made up of young people from ages 15-30 worked their way through these challenges. Not only did they experience the excitement of competition, the joys of friendship, and the colourful Darwin multicultural community, they also had the chance to win massive cash prizes.
The event was sponsored by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal and the Northern Territory Government.
Our community partners:
Chung Wah Society; Amma’s Cafe; Australian-Japanese Association of the NT Inc; Wonderful Indonesia; City of Darwin; Darwin Waterfront; and ABC Darwin.
Visit our YouTube channel to watch all the episodes of The RACE!
