We are looking for individuals who would like to model in the upcoming Diversity Festival fashion show which will take place on Saturday April 6th.

We are looking for 2x models per culture to represent a number of countries around the world. We are open to all ages/sizes/genders and religions. You must be able to provide your own cultural costume; cultural music, you must be confident and be available for the upcoming workshop.

The workshop will take place Sat 30 March from 10- 12noon at Tupu Library (102 Dawson Road, Otara). All ‘confirmed’ models are to come with their traditional costumes that they would like to wear on the runway including their shoes. They must also bring music that they would like to walk down the catwalk to.

If you would like to be part of this event, please email Nora and tell her why you’d like to be involved with the subject header: Diversity Festival Model

Zero Waste Event

The Diversity Festival is a Zero Waste Event. A Zero Waste Event is one that generates less waste, and/or the right kind of waste for reuse. This means any marketing material must be compostable/recyclable, and any food and beverage must be supplied in compostable packaging.

Packing which is not essential to the use, distribution, retail sale, storage or safety of your products should be avoided. Packaging or utensils that are essential for these purposes are required to be compostable and constructed from 100% renewable resources. 

The festival will provide traders with facilities for separating their waste into designated bins to avoid contamination of recyclables and unnecessary sorting at our onsite sorting station. Please ensure you use only recyclable and compostable materials where possible.

Please ensure that you do not sell any items that may have a negative environmental impact on the festival site. For example, chupa chup lollipops, chewing gum. The festival provides a compost waste disposal system for all caterers. It will be a requirement of all stallholders and vendors that they use this system.
