Gambling Harm Awareness Week.

Gambling Harm Awareness Week 2018 is September 3-9, so this is the perfect time to highlight the harm that can come from gambling.

The event: "Explore the Asian culture: Embracing cultural identity in Auckland" - A Gamble free Day with your friends and family.

Asian Family Services is partnering with Local Boards to deliver a community event on Saturday 8 September to raise awareness about gambling harm through a celebration embracing Asian cultural identity in Auckland.

The event has many purposes including creating a safe environment where Asians can learn about gambling harm. The event will include cultural performances and demonstrations. Professional photographers will be available to take family or individual portraits in the setup booths with their chosen traditional costume, which will be provided by AFS.

We will also encourage individuals (especially international students) or families to wear their traditional dress to the event to showcase their culture and at the same time explore other cultural traditions. To ensure the event caters for all ages, we will also include children's face painting and balloon twisting along with traditional Chinese opera that will appeal to older members of the Asian community.

The initiative will be promoted through AFS social media platforms including Facebook, WeChat (Chinese social media), and KakaoTalk (Korean social media). We will also engage with all the Auckland-based ethnic media, such as Skykiwi (Chinese media), Korean Post (Korean media), and more. Finally, posters in several languages will be available in community hubs (libraries, schools, social services, and community shops).
