This year's biennial festival Marion Celebrates is designed to promote cultural diversity and will offer people a unique opportunity to encounter various cultures and meet community groups. The theme is Many Cultures - One Earth and will be conducted at The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre, located at Warriparinga, off Sturt Road, near the corner of Sturt and Marion Roads, Bedford Park.
Tjilbruke Gateway is an entrance to the Kaurna Living Culture Centre and acts as a filtering and learning process whereby it tells a layered story of the Kaurna culture. People can enter the area by walking between the tree trunks and across the "pathways of knowledge." The artwork by Margaret Worth was collaborated with Kaurna artist Sherry Rankine, artist Gavin Malone and Kaurna senior Georgina Williams.
