Current programs and partnerships
- Engaging the community to update the Shoalhaven Multicultural strategy
- Supports Harmony Day
HARMONY DAY 2019
Harmony Day is celebrated nationally on the 21st March. This special day allows all Australians to celebrate our diverse multiculturalism and aims to encourage respect and belongong for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background.
Since 1999, more than 70,000 Harmony Day events have been held around Australia.
As part of 2019 Harmony Day celebrations Shoalhaven City Council have partnered with Illawarra Multicultural Services, and other community organisations to provide a free screening of the 'The Merger' at The Roxy Cinema. The movie will commence at 5pm on Friday 22nd March 2019.
The Merger is a heart warming Australian comedy/drama about the trials and tribulations of an Aussie Rules Club in the small town of Bodgy Creek. Will it survive impending closure? Its only chance of survival appears to be the recruitment of players from refugee and migrant communities. How will these outsiders cope with the new rules and the strangely shaped ball?
