Beating in harmony
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.
