All Panels and Talks will be held at the Harold Park Community Hall at Tramsheds and take note that bookings are required for all sessions, including the free sessions for catering purposes. Australian baritone Dr Leslie Flanagan back in Australia for a short visit from the States, has generously offered to perform a repertoire of Australian classics as well as more recent compositions from young Australian composers. This performance traces the development of song in Australia and highlights important works and great traditions.
Glebe has a rich Aboriginal history and culture and the bus tour ($25) on 29 June from 11am to 1pm leaving from Tranby College (corner of Boyce and Mansfield Streets) will delve into places that show said rich history and culture. See where the 1965 Freedom Rides started from at University of Sydney and where it ended – outside Charlie Perkins' home in Catherine St, Glebe. Other locations on the tour will be advised at a later date. This tour is suitable for people in wheelchairs. With a diverse range of events and a wide range of experiences on offer, this is a community festival not to be missed.
