The moving feast of Harmony Day is coming to Mullumbimby this year for the first time on Saturday, April 28 at the Civic Hall and surrounding gardens and will be treating everyone to a day and evening of multicultural performance, food and celebration of harmony.

You will see 200 exciting multicultural performers on stage plus chefs cooking up an exquisite international cuisine all day and night in the name of harmony, inclusion, diversity and anti-racism,’ said coordinator Judy Shelley.

Starting with the meditative kirtan music of Micotsuki Shivamoon with Shivam at 11am there will be dance performances from Bollywood to the hilarious Balinese Mask Dance and first ever Dayak Dance from Kalimantan.

The delights will continue throughout the day with music, drumming workshops and free vegan food as well as some great holiday activities for the kids.

There will be ‘Aboriginal activities, spinning, drumming, dancing, face painting, juggling, crafts and heaps of kids’ groups on stage,’ said Ms Shelley.

Everyone is reminded that this is a waste-free event so you need to bring your own plates and cups. A washing station will be provided.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
