Join the Miller community and Liverpool City Council for a fun day of activities to celebrate Harmony Day
Join the Miller community and Liverpool City Council for a fun day of interactive activities, workshops and performances to celebrate Harmony Day at Miller Square from 11am-1pm on Tuesday 22 March.
“The Miller area is home to a high number of residents from Aboriginal backgrounds as well as many new migrants – almost 47 per cent of residents were born overseas and 62 per cent speak a language other than English at home,” said Liverpool Mayor Ned Mannoun.
“The theme for Harmony Day 2016 is ‘our diversity is our strength’ so we are celebrating the diverse cultures of the people who live in the 2168 post code area.”
“There will be lots of free entertainment, including Aboriginal dance performances, multicultural art and craft workshops showcasing local talents, reptile displays, Bollywood-style dance, face painting and play groups for the kids,” Mayor Mannoun said.
“We want to reinforce the message that everyone has a place in our society. We also want to hear how diversity makes you or your community stronger, so please share your thoughts by using the hashtag #harmonyday.”
This event is a joint project of the Community 2168 Project, South West Youth peer Education, The HUB Community Health Centre, Mission Australia-Miller Pathways, Liverpool MRC, CHETRE-Community STaR, MTC Australia, NSW Police – Green Valley Local Area Command and the 2168 Food 4 Life Market.
A number of other Harmony Day community events are planned for the Liverpool local government area. See Council’s website for details, www.liverpool.nsw.gov.au.
