Inspirational West Australians have been recognised for their outstanding contribution towards multiculturalism as part of Harmony Week 2016 celebrations.  

The 2016 WA Multicultural Recognition Awards recognised 27 individuals, organisations and community groups across eight categories including individual contribution, lifetime service, volunteering, local government, private sector, marketing, and arts and culture.

The recipients ranged from individuals working at a grassroots level to large organisations incorporating the principles of multiculturalism in their day-to-day business.

Another initiative as part of Harmony Week is the launch of the Voices in Harmony Project, an online playlist featuring 15 local artists representing the diverse cultures of WA.

The soundtrack is available online and provided as a resource for activities and celebrations during Harmony Week, as well as throughout the year to highlight Western Australia's vibrant multicultural society.
