Harmony Day is celebrated on 21 March each year.
Managed by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), Harmony Day celebrates the cohesive and inclusive nature of our nation and promotes the benefits of cultural diversity.
DIAC supports a range of community events and activities held to celebrate Harmony Day by providing free promotional products.
The continuing message of Harmony Day is ‘Everyone Belongs’. It's about community participation, inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.
The 2010 theme is ‘Express Yourself’. This gives you the opportunity to share with others the importance of diversity in your workplace, school and community through action, performance, fashion and food.
Since Harmony Day began in 1999 thousands of schools, community groups and organisations across Australia have hosted Harmony Day events.
There is no limit to the range of activities that can be held for Harmony Day and we encourage schools, community groups, local government and businesses to get involved and actively support this day of celebration.
