Community groups and not-for-profit organisations are now invited to apply for grants to support Harmony Week 2020.
The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries is offering funding of $2000 for diversity and inclusion activities to celebrate Harmony Week in 2020.
Harmony Week, a WA State Government initiative, runs from 15-21 March every year and is an opportunity for everyone to experience, explore and appreciate WA's wealth of cultural, faith, linguistic and ethnic diversity.
"Harmony Week is an opportunity for all of us to celebrate and explore the vibrant multicultural community that we enjoy in Western Australia," said Citizenship and Multicultural Interests Minister, Paul Papalia.
"Local activities based around arts and culture, or sport and recreation are great ways to bring the community together for Hamony Week so that people can learn about the cultures and traditions that make up the neighborhood."
More information, including guidelines and application forms, is available from the Harmony Week page of the OMI website.
Applications close at 4.00pm Monday 21 October 2019.
