Beat­ing in har­mony

Wanneroo Times - - Wanneroo Link -

EVENTS cel­e­brat­ing mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism and in­clu­sive­ness will be held in the City of Wan­neroo as part of Har­mony Week from March 15 to 21.

The City’s an­nual Global Beats and Eats event will be held from 4pm to 9.30pm on March 17 at Paloma Park in Maranga­roo, with Kingswood as the head­line act.

Food trucks will cater for ev­ery ap­petite with a choice of cuisines, in­clud­ing Ara­bic, French, In­dian, Mex­i­can, Span­ish, Thai and Viet­namese.

Other events in­clude Sto­ry­time at the Clark­son and Yanchep/Two Rocks li­braries to teach chil­dren about WA’s cul­tural di­ver­sity, It’s All About Play at the Banksia Grove Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, and an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion for new Aus­tralians at the Gir­rawheen Hub cov­er­ing so­cial is­sues.

More than 40 per cent of the City’s pop­u­la­tion was born over­seas and 20 per cent of res­i­dents speak a lan­guage other than Eng­lish at home.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City was a di­verse and vi­brant com­mu­nity that em­braced di­ver­sity to create a sense of be­long­ing and har­mony for all res­i­dents re­gard­less of cul­tural, re­li­gious, lin­guis­tic or eth­nic back­ground.
