Harmony Day 2017 | Free event
Dianella Population Health proudly celebrates Harmony Day with an exciting showcase of multicultural performance, food, community presentations and a keynote address by respected curator, consultant, author and activist Tasneem Chopra.
This year, we will feature the achievements of those individuals and groups who have worked with Dianella Health to make Hume an inclusive and welcoming community for everyone.
Held every year on 21 March, Harmony Day coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The message of Harmony Day is ‘everyone belongs’ and aims to engage people to participate in their community, respect cultural and religious diversity and foster sense of belonging for everyone. Dianella Population Health's commitment to working with community to prevent social discrimination and the promotion of diversity was recently recognised by the Victorian Multicultural Commission’s (VMC) Multicultural Awards for Excellence by being Highly Commended in the category of Community Innovation.
