Celebrate Harmony Day in the Library this week. We will have a fantastic display and a great selection of books available on difference races, diversity and cultures. Check it out.
What is Harmony Day?
Harmony Week is an opportunity for all Western Australians to celebrate our vibrant multicultural State.
The week runs from 15–21 March every year and encourages everyone to experience, explore and appreciate WA’s wealth of cultural, religious, linguistic and ethnic diversity.
Harmony Week is a State Government multicultural community relations initiative.
Cultural diversity’s benefits
Harmony Week is an opportunity to consider the many benefits WA gains from its culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
Benefits include job creation, improved skill levels, the introduction of new skills and networks, and improved economies of scale.
The economic advantages are also many. Our diverse communities link us strongly with the rest of the world and increase our competitiveness in this global market.
Harmony Week is an opportunity for all Western Australians to celebrate our diversity while working to remove barriers that still exist in the community.
