A unique lineup can be expected with a focus on Indigenous languages. A platform has been created for these languages to be heard and celebrated through film, music, yarns, street food markets and the artisan markets. You'll find stalls offering unique crafts, bound together by a common thread. A focus on environmental and Indigenous sustainability. Enjoy street food from around the world prepared by refugee and asylum seeker communities. The Hobo Gro at the Centre has abundant seasonal and locally available produce grown organically and by the community. Discover the free ecological and medicinal services of the plants often referred to as weeds. Enjoy demonstrations on preparing edible weed salads and herbal teas.

From 7pm onwards, get ready for some unique and eclectic performances, kicking off with a welcome to home from the oldest and continuous living culture in Australia. From there, head on down on a musical journey to the Bolivian Andes to connect with Quechua language complemented by sounds played with traditional instruments such as Charango, Zampońas mixed with contemporary rhythms of guitar. The island of Cuba is the next stop where you'll dance to Yoruba religion and language. The rhythms and songs are linked with spirits that provide welfare to the community. Afro Mandingue will also bring a unique fusion of rhythms from West Africa. See below for timing of other events within the Fest.
