Harmony Week is a week to celebrate Australian multiculturalism, based on the successful integration of migrants into our community.
As part of the WA state's initiative, Buddha's Light International Association of WA (BLIAWA Inc.) is presenting a FREE community event 'Harmonious New Year Celebrations' on Sunday 17 March 2019 at Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple.
This one-day family-friendly event celebrates the flourishing multiculturalism of Australia and unique new year celebrations and traditions from around the world.
Organisers have invited guests from Chinese, Bhutanese, Thai, Phillippine, Swedish and Italian groups to showcase their traditions, customs, foods and culture. Eventgoers can look forward to lion dancing, a vibrant cultural parade, exhibition sharing, a photo-booth exhibition and a delicious complimentary vegetarian lunch.
The organisers envision this event to serve as a platform to create a community that is inclusive and respectful of all Australians, regardless of their culture.
All are welcome to come along and meet new friends in the local community. Start planning your visit today by joining the Facebook event. We hope to see you there!
