Peace in any language: Harmony Day, Strathfield

March 23, 2015 – 9:16 am

As Harmony Day marks its 15th year of celebrating cultural diversity, Strathfield Campus Library is doing its bit to promote inclusiveness and respect.

Staff and students are putting pins on a world map to show where they or their ancestors hail from. Post-its are on hand so that library visitors can also write the word peace in another language.

For students keen to explore saying peace in other languages, they can scan a QR code to a website.

We also provided QR codes to link students to relevant electronic resources held at ACU, including a dictionary of languages, an e-journal article on multiculturalism in Australia and the Multicultural Australia and Immigration Studies database.
