A concert on the lawns of Parliament House
The Apology10 - Heal Our Past, Build Our Future concert will be held on the lawns in front of Old Parliament House on Tuesday, 13th February, starting at 6pm. This concert on 13th February, marks exactly 10 years since the National Apology to the Stolen Generations. The National Apology, given by then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, was a significant event for members of the Stolen Generations and their families, the wider Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and other Australians.

The concert will be hosted by Aboriginal comedian Steven Oliver Official and TV and radio presenter Myf Warhurst. It will feature live performances from Archie Roach, Shellie Morris Music, The Preatures, Busby Marou and Electric Fields Music.
