140 Harmony Week
Join 140 William in celebrating WA’s rich cultural diversity with Harmony Week, running March 15-21.
The week of festivities kicks off March 15 in the 140 laneways, featuring $5 food plates and live performances from 11.30-2.30pm. Get down on the day for delicious $5 street eats from around the world plus free henna hand painting, gelato, origami folding and loads more!
Entertainment will abound at The Globe Lane and Postal Palace, with Indigenous dance and didgeridoo performances, reggae rappers, Bollywood dancers, a roaming Mariachi band, Hula Girls, African drummers, Japanese stilt walkers, plus a Maori choir featuring in the Murray Street Mall! All this and more from March 19-21, 12.30-1.30pm, where the Perth public will be treated to live musical performances selected for their ability to illuminate WA’s vibrant multicultural society.
Held on the ground floor foyer of the 140 William precinct throughout the entire week, the Belonging exhibition will act as a platform for young creatives from migrant and refugee backgrounds to share their stories and explore their identities through a visual medium. Running all day for the length of Harmony Week, the works to be featured are the result of creative development workshops, introduced to enhance the expression of intercultural understanding and a positive sense of identity.
For a taste of WA’s diverse history and a window into our future, the place to be is 140 William this Harmony Week.
