Harmony Week, celebrating multiculturism.
(First time on a tall training ship for Robert, 13, making his way up the Leeuwin)
Harmony Week is a week set aside to celebrate multiculturalism and providing opportunities for us
to reflect on how we collectively and individually value our diversity.
It is part of the Australian Government's Living in Harmony initiative and each year,
on the 21st of March coinciding with the United National International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination,
it provides Australians with opportunity to get to know each other better by:
- promoting our community' success as a multicutural society.
- re-commiting ourselves to respect, goodwill and understanding between all Australians of all backgrounds and
- saying no to racism.
Each year an increased number of individuals, community organisations, businesses, schools, government agencies
take part in events, activities and celebrations to help gain a better understanding of respective cultures.
From a high-seas adventure on a training tall ship, a traditional welcoming dance or a multicultural activity in
the primary school's classroom, the right message of learning from one another helps to respect multiculturalism.
It is important to maintain, develop and express cultural diversity through traditional or contempory art, and art is a wonderful
medium through which people can express cultural identity.
"Gathering our energy against discrimination, we want to commit ourselves to harmony to make a difference in our community".
