Diversity Celebration

A splash of added diversity will be part of the Carmel Farmers Market on Saturday, June 27, as visitors are encouraged to visit two special booths at the market – hosted by the Pakistan American Friendship Association and the Russian School of Indiana. The booths are being added as part of the Celebration of Diversity at the Carmel Farmers Market and will be located on the western edge of the Center Green.

In the spirit of education and community building, the booths will feature cultural art, costumes, crafts, education, food and music related to the Pakistan and Russian cultures. The effort was initiated by the Mayor’s Advisory Commission on Human Relations.

“For any community to thrive, it is paramount that we get to know each other and learn each other’s cultures. We felt the Carmel Farmers Market, which already brings together a diverse crowd every Saturday morning, would be the perfect place to provide this cross-cultural opportunity,” said Barbara Lamb, Human Resources Director and chair of the Commission.

This is the inaugural year for showcasing the many diverse cultural and ethnic groups that reside in our community.  The Celebration of Diversity is a great way to appreciate the contributions of our citizens of all races, cultures and ancestries.

The Mayor’s Advisory Commission on Human Relations was established in November 2009 to advise the Mayor and recommend ways to better recognize the contributions of all Carmel residents to our great quality of life and identify any obstacles that may prevent full citizen participation in all of our city’s civic and other activities.
