Culture and religion

The Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI) consults with key Western Australian religious leaders to produce information sheets on culture and religion.

The sheets offer useful information for members of the public, students and anyone interested in finding out more about the different cultures and religions that make up our multicultural society. They can also assist service providers in government and not-for-profit community sectors in improving development and delivery of services

There is an information sheet on each of the following religions: Baha’i, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. The sheets give brief details of the history of each religion in WA as well as information on the background and origins of the religions and an outline of their key beliefs.

OMI’s culture and religion information sheets offer information on cultural aspects of these seven religions, on topics including ‘Food, drink and fasting’, ‘Body language and behaviour’, ‘Medical’ and ‘Counselling and interviews’, among others.
