Cultural Diversity

The City offers Cultural Diversity programs that cater for multicultural interests, issues and needs in Cockburn.

We can work with schools to provide:

Cultural excursions which give students and teachers direct exposure to diverse cultures to help promote respect and inclusion among the whole school community. Contact us if you would like your students to visit local cultural groups or places of worship.

Cultural talks and activities provide a range of opportunities for students and teachers to develop knowledge about specific cultures. Contact us if you would like to invite people from specific cultural and religious backgrounds into your schools.

Harmony week celebrates cultural diversity and promotes harmony throughout the week of 15-21 March each year. Harmony Week events in 2021 will include a community event to be held in conjunction with Connecting Community for Kids, providing a celebration of culture and connection through food, music and dance.

These will include cultural performances, international food, storytelling and other culture-focused activities, providing exposure to various cultures and to learn about and celebrate cultural diversity.
