The Koorie Heritage Trust invite you to celebrate Christmas a little differently this weekend

The Koorie Heritage Trust are bringing back their one-of-a-kind festive celebration, A Very Koorie Christmas, for a third year this weekend at Federation Square.

Join these local legends for an afternoon of music, dancing and workshops. Get creative with Nathan Patterson from Iluka Arts and Design on hand to help design some Koorie Krismas decorations, while Bernadette Atkinson will be cooking up some lemon myrtle balls and the folks from Yarn Strong Sista will be putting together some bush bouquets. Don’t worry if all this activity makes you hungry, Grumble Tumms will be pulling up in their food truck to serve up some fantastic Indigenous flavours.

Kids can get their nails and faces painted with the Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island flags before they have a game of Koorie-inspired naughts and crosses. They'll also learn about traditional stories with some colouring-in activities.

James Henry and Corey Theatre will bring the acoustic jams to the stage, along with dance group Indigenous Hip Hop Projects and even a special appearance from Koorie Klaus at 3pm!

If you’re still in need of a Chrissy gift then the Trust have you covered. Their retail store will be open throughout the day, chock-full of pieces by Koorie artists that would look perfect under anyone’s tree this December.

The Koorie Heritage Trust gallery will also be open on the day and hosts the Koorie Art Show 2017, their annual end of year exhibition.
