Welcome

Welcome to another year of celebrating First Australian culture and heritage in the Northern Sydney region. Welcome to the Guringai Festival 2017, we are still going strong!

“Connections” is this year’s festival theme, inviting people of all ages to connect and participate in events across the region. We are promoting intergenerational conversations, activities and perspectives and when viewed by different people of different age groups, gender and races we have the ability to connect and shape our future, being inclusive of all.

“Connections” invites youth in the region to contribute to our story of place so we can be better informed about what is needed now and for the next generations. As adults we need to listen and grow up our young ones strong!

Once again we have a long list of activities that commemorate, celebrate and create spaces and places for those important conversations to be had.

We invite you to come along; attend a concert; film night, forum, art exhibition or bush walk, which has all been created for you and your families enjoyment.

Once again, welcome to this years Guringai Festival
