Baluk Arts Events
In 2014 Baluk Arts presents its 5th
Survival Day Picnic
at Frankston Foreshore
on Australia Day, JANUARY 26 from 11am to 3pm
Join us in celebrating the strength and survival of Aboriginal culture in south east Melbourne. This beachside FREE event is a local showcase of Indigenous music featuring live performances by BENNY WALKER, ILLANA ATKINSON, Peter Rotumah, Allyson Walker and David Dryden. Meet four local Aboriginal organisations which will be providing information on the day. These are Baluk Arts (Mornington), Nairm Marr Djambana Gathering Place (Frankston), Willam Warrain (Hastings) and Dandenong & District Aboriginal Cooperative Ltd.
Our Survival Day concert celebration reflects the values, beliefs and attitudes of many contemporary Australians in that Indigenous commemoration is an appropriate part of Australia Day. Whilst acknowledging the pain and trauma associated with dispossession, Survival Day is also a time to celebrate the strength, vitality and survival of Indigenous culture.
BYO shade, picnic, rug, sunscreen, hat and water.
This event is drug and alcohol free.
