harmony week - everyone belongs

Join us to celebrate Harmony Week!

As a part of Harmony Week celebrations, we're holding Harmony Day on Tuesday, March 21.

There'll be live music, cultural sharing, and FREE food from a variety of vendors sharing dishes from Argentina, Spain and Tibet.

Harmony Day will also include performances from the Midnight Dreaming dance troupe, and many cultural clubs on campus. There will be stalls from community groups, support services on campus and community organisations supporting multicultural communities in the Hunter Region.

You’re encouraged to wear your cultural dress or orange – the official colour of Harmony Week

Everyone belongs at our University and we're proud to be a culturally diverse institution. Harmony Day brings opportunities for celebration but also puts a focus on individuals and the systems in which we are a part of in being Anti Racist.

Regardless of beliefs, language spoken, religion or cultural background, our vision is for all students to feel they belong here and are empowered to achieve their full potential.

The University of Newcastle offers a range of support for international students. There are more than 100 student-run groups that you can be part of, including sporting, academic, social, cultural, and faith-based groups.

Head down to the Auchmuty Courtyard at 11.30am to join in the festivities!
