20 Year Anniversary of Harmony Celebrations
Harmony Week is a time to celebrate Australian multiculturalism, and the successful integration of migrants into our community.
Last year in 2019, the Department of Home Affairs led national celebrations for the 20th anniversary of Harmony Day. The event was renamed Harmony Week to recognise diversity and inclusion activities that take place during the entire week. Harmony Week will include 21 March, which is the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
Since 1999, more than 80,000 Harmony Week events have been held in childcare centres, schools, community groups, churches, businesses and federal, state and local government agencies across Australia.
Australia is one of the most successful multicultural countries in the world. Harmony Week is about inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background, united by a set of core Australian values.
Celebrations involve getting together with friends and family and through schools, workplaces and our wider communities to celebrate our diversity. Getting involved can be as simple as hosting an event or attending a local celebration.
