NAIDOC Week is around the corner from July 2-9 and it’s the perfect time to show up in support of our First Nations communities and celebrate their history, culture and achievements. If you’re not sure how to celebrate or get involved, Carriageworks has dropped an exclusive Nights Program featuring music, spoken word and poetry and it’s completely free to visit. The program celebrates this year’s NAIDOC week theme ‘For Our Elders’ by creating a space for Indigenous Elders and young people to gather and share.
Carriageworks Nights Program for NAIDOC Week
Erub psychedelic pop artist Sycco will headline the event with an intimate show featuring her entire band. Hip hop artist Dobby (Murrawarri) and violinist Eric Avery (Ngiyampaa/Yuin/Bandjalang/Gumbangirr) will also perform at the event and share more about their culture through music.
Multidisciplinary artists Kirli Saunders (Gunai) and Jazz Money (Wiradjuri) are also part of the exceptional line-up and set to open the evening with moving spoken word and poetry performances. As you sit back and enjoy the shows, Aboriginal-owned cafe Indigiearth will be on-site dishing out tasty food and beverages.
The Carriageworks Nights program will run for ten days over the next three months with performance, film, music and food on the menu. It kicks off on Thursday, July 6 from 6pm to 10pm. Head here for more details.
