Harmony Day 2017

Harmony Day 2017

This year’s overall message of Harmony Day highlighted that ‘everyone belongs’. We held an event at SCARF to celebrate our cultural diversity and highlight that multiculturalism helps make the Illawarra a wonderful place.


Community members and volunteers shared with us their personal meaning of harmony.

Kel Mackenzie shared:

“Harmony to me means living peacefully firstly, with your neighbours, new arrivals and particularly in the context in Wollongong with SCARF it means being able to help and work with new arrivals. Learning from their culture – it’s amazing how we’re all able to learn off each other and live with a more rewarded life. I’ve got so many rewards from doing this and learning about other cultures, it’s changed my life.”

We look forward to celebrating harmony every day at SCARF.
