SNAP happy youth promoted multiculturalism and diversity in Launceston Civic Square on Monday for National Youth Week.
Migrant Resource Centre youth committee member Grace Williams, 17, said a greater multicultural society in Launceston could effect change for the better.
She said the event celebrated youth and was specifically targeted at allowing the broader community to learn and be involved in the activities of the youth of the migrant community.
''We are trying to connect, share our cultures and foster inclusion,'' Grace said.
''The face of Launceston has changed over the past 10 to 15 years. It is no longer an anglo majority and we are seeing people from the Afghan, Nepali, Bhutanese, African, Sudanese and many more communities.
''When we work in such a small community all sorts of tensions and some racial divides can of course occur. What we as a group want to do is elevate how important multiculturalism is. In a multicultural society you share with one another, you learn new things, and overall human capital improves.''
Participants in the National Joblink and Northern Tasmania Migrant Resource Centre supported event were invited to share what multiculturalism and inclusion meant to them, have their photo taken in a specially organised booth, and were given National Youth Week gift bags.
