The 'Parra Youth Matters' (PYM) Youth Jury project is off and running following the Harmony Day event that were held in Parramatta Mall on the Thursday 20 March.
Hundreds of locals wore orange ribbons for Harmony Day, while enjoying free lunch and entertainment, and completing PYM community surveys and youth jury participation forms.Harmony Day falls on 21 March and coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
It is supported by hundreds of celebrations around the nation in which schools, councils and communities come together to celebrate cultural diversity and promote community harmony.
The festivities included a free BBQ provided by PYM and an Aboriginal welcome, with performances by Scott Simpkins Trio (Jazz Band), Sa Kabukiran (Filipino Dancers), Yuan Ji Dance (Blending Tai Chi + Martial Arts), and Latin Salsa Australia.
Harmony Day was an opportunity for the PYM team to inform the Parramatta community about the Youth Jury's objectives, as well as receive community input on cultural diversity in the local area.
For more information about what happened on Harmony Day including photos, see the Harmony Day page of the website.
