The RACE (The Racial and Cultural Experience) is an ‘Amazing Race-style’ competition that will be held on 25 June 2016 aiming to bring together the many diverse cultures woven into the community tapestry of the NT and to promote inclusion of all.
As per the ‘Amazing Race’ competition, there will be multiple different stations across Darwin city, each station representing a different cultural group and activity that pertains to that culture. Fifteen teams made up of young people from ages 15-30 will work their way through these stations, unravelling challenges, to be announced The RACE winners.
The RACE started as a simple idea from a group of four young people who participated in the Heywire Regional Youth Summit in 2015. You can read their story here.
