Residents are invited to celebrate Canterbury-Bankstown’s cultural diversity, by attending Harmony Day festivities in March.

Celebrations kick-off at the inaugural World Traditional Games Day for local high schools, at Belmore Sports Ground, on Wednesday 20 March.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the day would showcase the cohesive and inclusive nature of the local community, and promote the benefits of cultural diversity, respect and a sense of belonging.

"These events underline that our community thrives on its differences - the exchange of cultures is a continual source of innovation, vibrancy, and vitality," he said.

"Taking part in traditional games will be a fun and culturally-enriching experience for many of our residents, particularly our youth. I hope they will not only learn a new sport, but share their experience with their family and friends."

The World Traditional Games will begin with an opening ceremony, showcasing an array of different flags, which will be followed by games, lunch and closing ceremony.

On Thursday 21 March, a children’s Harmony Games will be held at Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre, from 9.30am-2.30pm, which will include day full of craft and recreation activities.

From 28 March to 6 April, the 4Elements Hip Hop Festival, which is now in its fifth year, will be held at Paul Keating Park and Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre, with more than 100 artists performing. Other activities include:

  • Film screenings; 
  • Information stalls; 
  • Food vans; 
  • Painting areas; and 
  • Street art.
