Celebrating diversity

Join in the Harmony Day fun and festivities on Thursday 21 March at the Hub. Wear your national costume, or a splash of orange. Bring a dish that represents your culture to share on the tasting table. Then continue the celebrations at the Culture Fest on Sunday 24 March.

Harmony Day – Thursday 21 March, 11 am – 2 pm

Harmony Day is about celebrating the uniqueness of cultures that make the world so interesting, and it’s a chance to join together to show respect and belonging for everyone, regardless of cultural or linguistic background.

Cooking is a big part of a lot of different cultures so bringing some easy meals from your cultural heritage and sharing with others is really a fun way to get conversations going about the different cuisines, or simply chat about the specialties and similarities they bring. So, bring your special dish and share it in the Dining area.

We have a special program of activities from 12 noon to 1:30 pm in the area next to the library. Come along and discover the variety of presentations and performances. You can have your name written in Chinese Brush Calligraphy; admire the beautiful traditional Greek costumes; discover how to wear an Indian sari; listen to a delightful French poem; enjoy watching the graceful Vietnamese dance; and even have a try at dancing to a popular Indonesian song.
