InCommon is a campaign that encourages people to reach out across cultures and faiths to make Canterbury a place where everyone feels they belong.

The campaign was created in response to the Christchurch mosque attacks to highlight how similar we are to people who, at first, we may not think we share much in common. It acts as a reminder that our differences are often only skin deep.

Our differences make us unique, and we all have things in common.
