Carlton Harmony day

Harmony day is celebrated each year around Australia to celebrate our cultural diversity as a nation. The day is also the United Nation's International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The Carlton Harmony Day project is a strong partnership between Carlton Local Agency Network and community members with the common goals being to showcase local talent; bring community together; celebrate diversity; facilitate health promotion; and to offset isolation. The target audience is the overall suburb of Carlton, with a focus on the Carlton Estate; whereby Estate residents are able to share their talents and non-Estate residents have the opportunity to experience and appreciate the Estate's many cultures and talents.  Cultural harmony events will be held throughout the year.
