Staff and students at Charles Darwin University have embraced cultural diversity at various celebrations held across the Northern Territory for Harmony Day.
More than 100 refugee and migrant students in the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) shared their cultures through food and fashion at the Casuarina campus event.
Students from countries including China, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo dressed in traditional garments and prepared traditional dishes for guests at the event.
AMEP Contract Manager Barbara Laurie said the annual event provided opportunities for students to come together and learn about various cultures while also sharing their own.
“It’s quite a spectacular event,” Ms Laurie said. “I doubt you would see anything like it anywhere else.”
AMEP students from Palmerston campus also attended the Casuarina campus event, while AMEP students in Alice Springs held their own celebration at the Alice Springs campus.

“It is important to promote harmony, and that we are all living in the same country but are also a multicultural society.”
