As part of Harmony Week Friday, 15 to Thursday, 21 March 2019 the City of Melville will be hosting four free family friendly events to encourage everyone to experience, explore and appreciate WA’s wealth of cultural, religious, linguistic and ethnic diversity and celebrate our vibrant multicultural state.
Several multicultural performances featuring Chinese Opera, Indian music, Australian country music and a demonstration of Chinese Baduanjin will be held at Bull Creek Community Centre and Library to enjoy. Event goers at other events will also be able to taste cuisine from varying cultures, take photos with friends and family in pop up photo booths, or join in cultural workshops and games and activities, bringing everyone closer together to celebrate the diversity in Melville and enhance our sense of community.
City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said Harmony week is the perfect time to celebrate Melville’s rich diversity with fun, family-friendly and accessible events that give community members, no matter their age or family background an opportunity to explore our rich, cultural heritage in the community.
“ These four Harmony Week events are not to be missed, join in the celebration or – why not like me, don your best orange coloured clothing on Harmony Day to show your support for an inclusive community for now and future generations! ,” Mayor Aubrey said.
As of this year the City of Melville has become a member of Welcoming Cities, a national network of cities, shires, towns and municipalities who are committed to an Australia where everyone can belong and participate in social, cultural, economic and civic life.
Events will kick off on Saturday, 16 March at Willagee Library and will finish on Thursday, 21 March at Bull Creek Library. For more info on Harmony Week events visit www.melvilletalks.com.au/harmonyweek or call 1300 635 845 | 9364 0666.
