Harmony Day to be celebrated in Liverpool

A celebration of Liverpool's diverse culture is taking place on 'World Harmony Day' on Tuesday, 21 March 2017, at the Florence Institute in the Dingle.  The event, taking place from 10am to 4pm and organised by Liverpool Homeless Football Club, with funding from LCVS and support from Liverpool City Council, is aimed at combating racial hatred and discrimination following Brexit and the rise of extremist nationalism. Liverpool, as a City, has a great cultural background, and has a long history of welcoming people from far and wide. The idea of the day is to bring the cultures and communities of Liverpool together using music dance and food while reaching out to the hardest to reach communities. There will be performances from African Gospel singers, African drummers, Irish dancing, Nordic Music, Bollywood dancing and workshops, football and food from various cultures.  There will be live music or dance from each culture and each group will have a time limit to do their favourite or national sport.

Organisations involved include:-

The Merseyside Congolese Association.
► Sheila Kay Foundation.
► Merseyside Police.
► Royal Navy.
► South Liverpool CAB.
► Irish Community Care.
► Nordic Church.
► Ishtar TV Belly Dancing and Bolly Wood Dancing.
► Mary Seacole House.
► Liverpool Development Support.
► Street League.

Steve Barton Engagement Officer for Liverpool Homeless FC said:- "Due to recent issues, it concerns us that people may be discriminated against due to their religion, culture, position in society. sexuality or disability.  I believe as a city we can come together as one to stop this happening under our noses, we have a great chance to lead the way in Liverpool, for other Cities to follow.  We are lucky enough to be supported by some wonderful agencies who can also offer support and advice on various issues."

Councillor Emily Spurrell, Mayoral lead for Community Safety, added:- "I'm really pleased to be asked to support this event.  Liverpool has a strong history of welcoming diverse communities and it's great to see Liverpool homeless football club putting on this day so residents from across the City can experience the different cultures. I would encourage all residents to come along and take advantage of the free food and entertainment."

Separately, on Tuesday, 28 March 2017, from 10am to 3pm, the spirit of Merseyside 4 a side Football League will kick off focussing on tackling racism and diversity, at Lucozade power league, in Kirkdale.  This will be aimed at men aged 16+.  There will be stalls from agencies that promote anti discrimination and racism campaigns at this event. Transport will be available for community groups who may have issues getting to the events.
