Thank you to all of you who have supported Corroboree Sydney!
Together we created two wonderful festivals and even though Corroboree Sydney is no longer, we look forward to continuing to celebrate and share Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture through the inspiring work of our Elders, artists, dancers, musicians and writers. Corroboree Sydney acknowledges and pays respect to the Gadigal people for their ongoing custodianship of the lands and waters of Sydney city. This is Gadigal land, always was, always will be.
The WugulOra Indigenous Ceremony is a special moment to celebrate Australia’s traditional landowners on Australia Day. WugulOra is a word belonging to the Eora people meaning “One Mob”, which promotes and acknowledges the special place that Indigenous Australians hold and have always held in this country.
The ceremony will commemorate the start of Australia Day on 26 January at the Northern Boardwalk of the Sydney Opera House and is free for all to enjoy. For more information, please visit http://www.australiaday.com.au/…/wugulora-indigenous-cerem…/
