5EBI Adelaide Production Coordinator, Guillaume Vetu, shares his thoughts on the importance of celebrating diversity.
Guillaume: “It’s important because diversity exists — that’s a matter of fact. South Australia is made up of lots of people from all over the world with different cultures mixing together. We are all very different and we come from everywhere, speaking different languages with different perspectives. If we want a society that works well, we need to understand each other.
All the problems of the world come from misunderstanding and lack of communication. People are afraid of what they don’t know. The more you know about other people who are different from you, the more you realise that we are all the same.”
