City celebrates diversity during Harmony Week

14 March 2022 2:45 PM

The City of Kalamunda will embrace Harmony Week with two upcoming feature events: the Harmony Multicultural Festival and a cultural awareness and six Noongar seasons talk with respected elder, Uncle Neville Collard.

To help deliver the Harmony Week message that ‘Everyone Belongs’, Uncle Neville will talk about Cultural Awareness and the Six Noongar Seasons in the first of a series of talks, with this event being held at the Kalamunda Library from 2pm, Wednesday 23 March.

The Harmony Multicultural Festival, taking place on Saturday 19 March from 10am to 2pm at the Wattle Grove Nature Playscape (Lenihan Corner), will feature food trucks, kids activities, and live performances from a range of local community groups, vendors, and performers.

Mayor Margaret Thomas said the events are part of the City’s continuing focus on nurturing a strong, connected, and inclusive community.

“Harmony week is about celebrating the diversity that we are blessed with in our community, as well as recognising the enormous value which comes from having so many people with such a rich assortment of backgrounds contribute to our shared culture.”, she said.

“I encourage everyone to come down to one, or both, of these events and immerse yourself in cultures originating from all over the world, as well as our rich Indigenous culture.”

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, both these FREE events will be ticketed events.
