The Territory Labor Government is investing $52,000 for community organisations and schools to create projects, events, and activities that promote cultural diversity and harmony.
The Harmony Grants Program 2018-19 is now open to promote Harmony Day on 21 March next year. The projects however arent limited to this day and events can be held from March to 30 June, 2019.
The 2019 theme is Everyone Belongs which is about celebrating inclusiveness, respect, and a sense of belonging for everyone.
Examples of projects, events, and activities that the Harmony Grants can fund include:
School projects that recognise and celebrate student diversity
Traditional dancing performances
Multicultural storytelling and displays
Food and cultural festivals
Art/craft projects e.g. lantern making for the Darwin Waterfront Harmony Soiree
Cultural forums with guest speakers
Open days at community centres
Poetry/essay writing competitions
The Harmony Grants close on 31 October, 2019.
