The world’s oldest living culture is celebrated in Songlines that run throughout the festival, from the welcome offered by the Jinibara nation to our artists, and then extended to all visitors entering Jinibara country, to our Opening and Closing ceremonies. Dancestry celebrates the stories of First Nation dreamings made manifest in dance stories from around the world. The foundation cultures of Indigenous nations near and far are welcomed in workshops, performances, traditional dance demonstrations, visual arts, music, comedy and discussion series held by respected elders.
