Dancing on the Green

NAIDOC Celebrations 

Sun 7 Jul, 10am

Join us for a very special Dancing on the Green celebrating this year’s NAIDOC theme – Voice, Treaty, Truth. Arrive early for Yoga on the Green, before NAIDOC activities begin from 10am.

Witness a unique Welcome to Country featuring a short story by local Kombumerri Elder Ray Levinge, followed by a performance of “Giah Gaureima Wonga” (To tell your story) with live didgeridoo.

Learn and join in traditional dance with local performer Anthony Cora alongside the Biren Aboriginal Dancers (Biren meaning “Saltwater”).

Local band White Tree and contemporary dancer Thomas Kelly (currently taking part in our Creative Development Program – read more here), will entertain with a performance blending traditional and contemporary artforms.

And not to be missed, guitar virtuoso, proud Torres Strait Islander, and Australia’s Got Talent finalist Chris Tamwoy, will wow with his self-taught guitar skills.

With lots of other activities happening throughout the day – including a reflection on ‘Voice, Treaty, Truth’ from local Elders, and our markets by the lake featuring artisanal goods from Indigenous artists and makers – everyone is invited to stop by, join in, and celebrate NAIDOC 2019.

Presented by City of Gold Coast and HOTA, Home of the Arts.
