Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has encouraged the community of Wentworth to come together to celebrate the electorate’s cultural diversity this Harmony Day 21st March.

“We are proud to celebrate our rich diversity in the Wentworth community. Harmony Day is a great opportunity to be reminded of the importance of welcoming people from all over the world and that we are stronger because of it,” Mr Turnbull said.

There are many ways schools, universities, sporting clubs and workplaces can celebrate Harmony Day and the benefits of our cultural diversity.

In Wentworth, several events are already registered online at www.harmony.gov.au, including:

  • Harmony Day Story Time with Cynthia the Storyteller (for preschool children aged 3 to 5 years and their parents/carers)

21 March 2017 Watsons Bay Library 8 Marine Parade, Watsons Bay NSW

24 March 2017 Paddington Library 247 Oxford Street, Paddington NSW

  • Exhibition: Syrian artist, Mouneer Al-Shaarani’s Arabic Calligraphy Compositions

21 March – 9 April 2017 90 Ocean Street Sydney, Woollahra NSW

“I want to encourage individuals and community groups to think about how they can join in Harmony Day celebrations, whether that’s holding an event or learning more about how we can continue to foster a sense of belonging for people of different backgrounds”.
