About The Event
Week 3 is Harmony Week! LEXSA is helping to celebrate it with our Wellness Workshop: DIY Tassel Garlands and live music on Wednesday, 17th of March from 12pm.
Harmony Week is a time to celebrate Australian multiculturalism and the successful integration of migrants into our community. Australia is one of the most successful multicultural countries in the world and we should celebrate this and work to maintain it. Harmony Week is about inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background, united by a set of core Australian values.
The overarching theme for Harmony Week is 'Everyone Belongs'. Send in your contribution expressing your thoughts and aspirations to complete the phrase 'Together we can...'. Your submissions will be curated anonymously and shared as a poster on the Diversity Calendar Harmony Week page.

WEEKLY WELLNESS WORKSHOP
Every week LEXSA is helping you relax with our wellness workshops. This week we've got Kate Stroud from Stroud de Signs to help you create Woollen Tassel Garlands. We have all the materials you'll need, including a variety of coloured yarn, books to create your tassel around and of course; hand sanitiser. Please register a spot as spaces are limited, please note students must sanitise before attending this workshop.
We've got Dylan Pinkerton performing for you live from 12pm till 1pm (NSW time) in Goodman Plaza.
With stories of love and hope Dylan's unique style of folk, pop and soul is reminiscent of warm summer days and long nights by the sea. Often referred to as sounding like artists such as Ed Sheeran, John Mayer and Allen Stone, Dylan combines silky falsetto, heartfelt lyrics and catchy melodies that you'll be humming for days. Over the years Dylan has played all over the US and Australia playing notable festivals such as Byron Bay Blues Festival and Splendour in the grass.
Orange is the colour chosen to represent Harmony Week. Traditionally, orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect. You can choose to wear something orange during Harmony Week to show your support for cultural diversity and inclusivity.
Drop by and collect your Harmony Week ribbon, sticker, lanyard, bookmark or armband (limited numbers available) from your Student Equity & Inclusion Office, Shop 7, Goodman Plaza
