Harmony Week

Harmony Week is an opportunity for all Western Australians to celebrate our vibrant multicultural State.

Harmony Week 2023 Banner


The week runs from 15 to 21 March every year and encourages everyone to experience, explore and appreciate WA's wealth of cultural, religious and linguistic diversity.

Harmony Week is a State Government multicultural community relations initiative.​​

Why does orange represent Harmony Week??

Orange has been the Harmony Week colour since the first event was held in 1999.

Traditionally, orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect.

Wearing something orange during Harmony Week shows support for cultural diversity and an inclusive Australia.
