Event description

Description

Join us for the festival’s Official Opening Celebrations as we light the first fire with a Traditional Smoking Ceremony and Yura (Welcome)! ‘Water’ is a festival theme this year and we recognise its importance as the life-giving element – waters and oceans connecting peoples, nourishing the environment – giving life to all living things across lands and seas. Share our Opening day by the waters-edge featuring song, dance, Traditional tucker, markets, workshops and more including Guest First Nations’ artists from Melanesia. Enjoy music by Australia’s consummate contemporary songman Troy Jungaji Brady, and presenting emergent singer/songwriter Emily Wurramara – setting the tone for a taste of things to come in the next three months of our winter festival.
