Harmony 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 Mandurah gains from its culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) 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.
Within each community there are people who want to step up and make a difference. Through our Community Ambassador program, we identify and support local bi-cultural and bi-lingual people to better connect their communities to mainstream services, support, and useful information.
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic there has never been a more important time for Community Ambassadors than now! Five local people in the Mandurah area took up the volunteer role in 2020 to help connect the community. Each Community Ambassador has been provided a series of training sessions, on-going support from Multicultural Futures, and the City of Mandurah, and has in turn provided culturally appropriate workshops within their cultural community.
