The City of Canterbury Bankstown is inviting the local community to celebrate cultural diversity by attending Harmony Day festivities in March.

Celebrations kick-off at Lakemba Senior Citizen's Centre on 14 March, followed by a 4Elements All Age HipHop Festival at Bankstown Arts Centre on 18 March.

Administrator, Richard Colley, said the festivities would showcase the cohesive and inclusive nature of our community, and promote the benefits of cultural diversity, respect and sense of belonging.

"These wonderful events underline that our community thrives because of our differences - the exchange of ideas among cultures is a continual source of innovation, vibrancy, and vitality," Mr Colley said.

"I invite all residents to attend these events and join us as we revel in the unique multicultural identity of our City".

4Elements All Age HipHop Festival Volunteer Coordinator, Bilal Hafda, said attendees could expect a display of multiculturalism, with food, music and entertainment on 18 March.

"Audiences will be treated to an array of talent, with more than 100 artists displaying their skills on the day through performances and street art," he said.

"It’s about creating a safe space for young people who want to express their talent through artwork, graffiti, DJing, MCing and hip-hop dancing."

4Elements HipHop Workshops are being held at Bankstown Arts Centre in the lead-up to the event.

Mr Hafda said the highlight on the day of the festival will be seeing what these young artists have produced after attending the workshops.

Harmony Day celebrations will be held at the Lakemba Senior Citizen's Centre on 14 March from 10am-1pm, while the 4Elements All Age HipHop Festival will take place at Bankstown Arts Centre on 18 March from 1-11pm.
