Procession at Sydney Festival
Saturday 25 January 2020
Smoking ceremonies cleanse and allow rebirth; fire represents the opportunity for trees to re-germinate and the cycles of life and nature to continue.
Gather at Sydney Town Hall for the Procession through the streets of Sydney – a smoking ceremony, song and dance led by Aboriginal Elders.
At dusk, the Procession arrives at Barangaroo to start The Vigil, an overnight opportunity to gather campfire-side, experience live performances by Indigenous artists, and reflect on who you are and how you got here as a country.
