Come celebrate Harmony Day at Hurstville Civic Theatre

07/03/2017

Georges River Council is set to celebrate Harmony Day 2017 with a range of activities at the Hurstville Civic Theatre on Wednesday 22 March.
 
Community members are invited to discover how the Georges River local government area has been shaped to become such a unique multicultural community.
 
The day will include short film screenings, live performances and a panel discussion about community harmony.
 
There will also be an opportunity to hear personal stories from immigrants and for attendees to tell their own story of migration.
 
Georges River Council Administrator, John Rayner, said he strongly urges people to come and take part in celebrating the contributions and achievements of local people from all cultural backgrounds.
 
 “In the Georges River area, 39.5% of residents were born overseas and Council readily acknowledges the benefits and strength this diversity adds to our community.”
 
“Harmony Day seeks to foster respect for individuals from all cultures so that they experience a genuine feeling of belonging,” added Mr Rayner.
 
The Harmony Day event welcomes people of all ages to attend.
 
When: Wednesday 22 March, 10.00am – 1.00pm
Where: Civic Theatre, MacMahon Street, Hurstville
