North Sydney community comes together for Harmony Week

Media Release, 26 March 2024

The North Sydney community came together on Saturday to celebrate Harmony Week 2024 with a spectacular multicultural concert featuring over 200 performers from 16 talented local groups.

The event was hosted by Kylea Tink MP, Independent Federal Member for North Sydney and was attended by over 300 guests. Performances ranged from Tai Chi to school concert bands and string ensembles, Japanese martial arts, classical Indian and Irish dancing.

In line with the Harmony Week 2024 theme of “Everybody Belongs”, the concert was an opportunity for the distinct cultural groups within North Sydney to share their talents and appreciate the diversity of traditions and cultures in the local area.

Comments from Kylea Tink MP, Independent Federal Member for North Sydney:

“Australia’s diversity makes us stronger as a society. When people know that they are respected and valued for who they are, the entire community benefits.

“This Harmony Week is particularly important, as social cohesion across Australia falls to a record low. More than ever, we need to help build a sense of acceptance and belonging in our community, and to ensure everyone feels welcome and respected.

“It was an absolute pleasure to host this Harmony Week concert in North Sydney. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers, talented performers and the dedicated teachers and parents for helping to make this event such a joyous occasion.”
