Harmony Day at the National Office Print E-mail
The Quarterly 2012

Whilst working on Cultural Awareness programs at RACMA, Juliet Buchanan suggested a ‘Taste of Harmony Lunch’ for the office. This government initiative suggests that in the spirit of harmony and cultural awareness workplaces have a lunch where you bring food to share from your cultural heritage. See this link for the philosophy and other ‘Harmony’ ideas:

Although the lunch was postponed- in the spirit of harmony and inclusivity as some staff would have missed the lunch, it was a great success and fun. There was kippers from Harry, sausages in bread and fairy bread from Juliet, Arancini from Dino, Kangaroo salad from Michelle, Chocolate Ripple Cake from Stephanie, Irish bread from Karen, Red bean pudding from Mavis, Beef and carrot balls from Andrea, Kiwi fruit from Sue and more. It was a feast of nations, Karen Owen acknowledging the traditional owners of the land and each staff member explaining their food choice. There were a few memorable quotes, including Dino’s “By the way, there is a strong history of Royalty in my family so you’ll all have to hand feed me.”
