Celebrate cultural diversity with CBCity

The City of Canterbury Bankstown is celebrating its rich diversity this Harmony Week with a family fun day showcasing different cultures from across the City.

The Harmony Week Celebration, held on Saturday 19 March from 11am-2pm at ANZAC Park in Campsie, will feature cultural performances, a community barbeque, art workshops and more.

Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour said there are more than 129 nationalities and around 200 languages spoken by people living in CBCity.

“It is this diversity in cultures, languages and abilities that make up the richness of our City,” Mayor Asfour said.

“The Harmony Week Celebration is about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone who lives across Canterbury-Bankstown.”

A First nations smoking ceremony will begin the day, followed by prayers for peace by members of the Canterbury-Bankstown Interfaith Reference Group. Among the performers will be a Buddhist youth choir, Islamic school, Mission Australia, Horizon Theatre drama exploring contemporary cultural issues and a Cook Islander dance.

Uniting Church Minister and member of CBCity’s Interfaith Reference Group, Reverend Trevor Jennings said the richness of culture and religion in Canterbury-Bankstown should be celebrated and enjoyed.

“Every day we live, work, study, exercise and socialise with people from all over the world,” Reverend Jennings said.

“Gatherings such as Harmony Week Celebrations organised by City of Canterbury Bankstown provide a safe community space where people of diverse cultures can share their culture and enjoy the cultures of others.”

“Celebrations of diverse cultures deepen and develop community solidarity, enhance social cohesion and grow social capital.”

This event is proudly brought to you by the City of Canterbury Bankstown's Interfaith Reference Group.
