Closing the Gap Day 2022:

Event reflection

Wednesday 18 May

Each year, Sonder hosts Closing the Gap Day, an event aimed at supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of all ages to learn about services available across SA that can improve their health, wellbeing and other areas of their lives.

Closing the Gap Day brings these important service providers together in one place to share information, engage directly with community and other like-minded people and most importantly, to support the national Close the Gap campaign.

In its 5th year – not counting the two years lost to COVID – Closing the Gap Day was bigger than ever with over 1,500 guests in attendance! Featuring a huge range of over 100 stall holders, kids’ activities, a shared lunch, and a host of First Nations performers.
