Harmony Day 2017

Tuesday, 21 March 2017, 09:00 am


Join us to celebrate Harmony Day and the diverse cultural fabric of the University of Newcastle. The day is all about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.

Make your way to the newly opened Park on the Hill to experience food tastings, cultural activities such as henna tattoos and writing workshops, more great performances and a special session with NUPSA Cultural Connections.
