THE Penang Harmony Corporation (Harmonico) and its partners are holding the Penang Harmony Week 2022 this month to mark Harmonico’s first anniversary and the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Harmonico manager Paul Au told Buletin Mutiara that six programmes had been planned covering outdoor activities, exhibitions, performances and a dialogue.

“We are co-organising the events with our partners and the programmes are in a hybrid mode (physical and online).”

The six scheduled programmes are I Am Home@Penang Exhibition (9am-6pm until March 20); Harmony in Art (9am-noon, March 19 and 20); Taoism Exhibition (10am-3pm, March 17 to 20); Let’s Talk – Interfaith Dialogue (8pm, March 18); Sound of Harmony (6pm-8pm, March 20) and A Walk of Harmony (8am, March 21).

Most programmes will require pre-registration. However, A Walk of Harmony is by invitation only.

Au said Harmonico hoped to create awareness of the need to live harmoniously with each other.

Penang social development and non-Islamic religious affairs committee chairman Chong Eng said the theme was “Fostering Harmony in Diversity”.

Harmonico was established under the Penang Chief Minister Incorporated last year to promote harmony in the state.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said the state government had allocated a RM1.1mil budget for Harmonico this year.

The partners for Penang Harmony Week 2022 are AKK Culture Network, Studio Good Think, Me Sketch Studio (Azmi), Julian Kam Seng Yew (Lefty), Penang Women’s Development Corporation, Arts-Ed, Masjid Kapitan Keling, Penang Global Tourism, The Temple of Fine Arts Malaysia, Penang Tourist Guides Association, Urban Sketchers Penang, Think City, Dogood Club, and Perbadanan Perpustakaan Awam Pulau Pinang.
