Harmony Week 2016Posted: February 16, 2016
Our Libraries will be seeing orange when the 2016 Harmony Week celebrations kick off!
At Griffith we are lucky to have students and staff with such interesting and diverse backgrounds. Harmony Week is an annual university-wide event where we celebrate this diversity, encourage inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.
From 19 to 24 March our Libraries will join the celebrations with a range of activities that we’d love you to be a part of!
This year’s event will offer a special treat in the form of cultural recipes. Throughout the week students are encouraged to visit their Griffith Library to experience and share ‘A Taste of Harmony’. Each Library will have a display with blank recipe cards for you to share your international family recipe or enjoy someone else’s.
Harmony Week is also about giving back and this year the University is taking part in the One Million Stars to End Violence initiative.
Its aim is to end violence by bringing people together across the world to weave one million stars for a grand display in Queensland in 2018. These woven stars are symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women, bullying and racism.
Either visit the Library display to create your own or learn how to make them online and drop it in once you’re done!
