Movie Screening Sets the Scene for Harmony Week Celebrations
The Shire of Augusta Margaret River invites locals to celebrate the diverse heritage of Western Australians as part of Harmony Week 2021, with several events happening in the community including a free moving screening.
Harmony Week runs from 15–21 March every year and encourages people to experience, explore and appreciate WA’s wealth of cultural, religious, linguistic and ethnic diversity.
On Monday 15 March 2021 from 11.30am to 1pm, the Shire of Augusta Margaret River is showing a special screening of the documentary Inventing Tomorrow in recognition of Harmony Week 2021.
The free screening at the Margaret River HEART, follows the true story of six young scientists from Indonesia, Hawaii, India and Mexico as they tackle some of the most complex environmental issues facing humanity today – right in their own backyards.
Coordinator Community Planning and Development Jason Cleary said the free movie screening provided a relaxed way for people to acknowledge and celebrate Harmony Week.
“Inventing Tomorrow is a great documentary and a brilliant way to reflect on the many social, cultural and economic benefits of diversity,” he said.
“I encourage the community to book a free ticket to come along to the movie and to acknowledge Harmony Week by celebrating diversity at a local level.”
Bookings are essential for the free screening of Inventing Tomorrow and can be made by calling the Margaret River HEART on 08 9780 5294 or online at www.margaretriverheart.com.au
If you’re more of a foodie than a movie-goer, the Margaret River ‘World Food’ Night Market will also provide a great opportunity to celebrate Harmony Week, featuring foods from around the world on Friday 19 March from 5.30pm to 8.30pm at the Margaret River HEART sound shell.
For those keen to carry on their Harmony Week celebrations, Intercultural Action Group’s Building Bridges Intercultural Cooking Class will be held on Monday 22 March from 10.00am to 1pm at the Margaret River HEART. The free cooking class is part of a series of events run by the local group, which was funded through a Shire Community Development and Events Grant. At this class Leonardo Cerda will be providing a hands-on lesson on how to create delicious Venezuelan food such as Arepas con queso, Cachapas de jojoto and Caraotas Negras.
