Tamworth Regional Council Tamworth, NSW

Tell us a little about how you celebrated Harmony Day

Tamworth Regional Council planned a celebration of Harmony Day 2018 at Fitzroy Street in Tamworth for the whole community.

It offered a relaxed area to grab a multicultural bite, listen to a jazz band, experience bollywood and Aboriginal dances and the Projecting Harmony animations.

These animations created by local digital artists: Miranda Heckenberg, Tess Reading. Alice Hartigan, Danny Baldacchino Stanley and Andrea Bruno were projected on the walls of various buildings and structures raising awareness of this year’s theme: Everyone Belongs.

Who were your partners?

Tamworth Regional Council partnered with Northern Settlement Services and Multicultural Tamworth Inc. to plan and promote the event.

The ‘Projecting Harmony’ animations projected onto structures on Fitzroy Street were made possible with funding from the Regional Arts Fund. The Regional Arts Fund is an Australian Government initiative that supports sustainable cultural development in regional, remote and very remote Australia.

The Harmony Day Competitions Committee of Moving Forward Together supplied the 2017 winning posters, which include the winning posters from the Tamworth region to display at the events.

What was most memorable about your Harmony Day celebration?

The projections on the walls and structures created by artists were a very symbolic representation of the Spirit of Harmony and the theme: Everyone Belongs.

People of many diverse backgrounds celebrated together the rich diverse tapestry of our Tamworth community.
