Enjoy Free Harmony Day Activities at the Migration Museum


Harmony Day celebrates Australia's cultural diversity. It's about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone - no matter what your racial background or country of origin may be.

While Harmony Day is nominally celebrated on March 21, there are many free events held around that date. This year is the the 15th anniversary of our first Harmony Day.

On Sunday March 22 the Migration Museum invites you to join their free Harmony Day activities, in partnership with Baptist Care (SA), Australian Refugee Association and Welcome to Australia. There's a variety of free things to do which will appeal to people of all ages, including plenty of activities for kids.

The celebrations will be hosted by former refugees and migrants for the wider South Australian community. It is an opportunity for inter-cultural understanding and solidarity through music, dance, food, language and togetherness. It's a welcome contrast to our political leaders who have recently demonised these people and attempted to make them unwelcome.

All That Remains - In the Destitute Asylum, Migration Museum


This is a completely free event at the Migration Museum for Harmony Day. Come and learn about the culture of the refugees that we have welcomed to Australia, meet the people, and allow their life experiences to enrich our own. The Migration Museum is just down Kintore Avenue from the State Library of SA.

While you are at the Migration Museum, take the opportunity to visit the Interned: Torrens Island, 1914-1915 exhibition. It depicts the story of earlier migrants who were interned at Torrens Island during World War 1.

For more details about this Harmony Day event, see the event page on Facebook or the Migration Museum website.
