Weave – Fes­ti­val of Abo­rig­i­nal and Pa­cific Cul­tures

Where Sydney - - Where Now What’s On -

Aus­tralian Mu­seum presents the in­au­gu­ral Weave fes­ti­val fo­cus­ing on Abo­rig­i­nal and Pa­cific cul­tures. The month-long fes­ti­val fea­tures ex­hi­bi­tions, per­for­mances, films, talks, hand­son work­shops and the cre­ation of a new ma­jor sculp­ture ded­i­cated to Syd­ney’s Abo­rig­i­nal women. Re­spected El­ders, ar­ti­sans and com­mu­nity groups will weave to­gether their knowl­edge and sto­ries to build a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of First Na­tions cul­tures across Aus­tralia and the re­gion. The cen­ter­piece of Weave is “Gadi”, a land­mark ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brat­ing the rich cul­ture of Abo­rig­i­nal Syd­ney through his­tor­i­cal, con­tem­po­rary and ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ma­te­rial, some of which will be shown in pub­lic for the first time.

1–31 March, Aus­tralian Mu­seum, 1 Wil­liam Street, Syd­ney. 9320 6000. aus­tralian­mu­seum.net.au
