Solidarity and celebration. Join Gail Mabo, daughter of Eddie Mabo, and our local Aboriginal Elders for the inaugural We | Here | Now program at Fed Square. Following the raising of Fed Square’s first permanent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags, the main stage will be filled with performances by acclaimed artists including Casey Donovan, plus a variety of cultural workshops, and a marngrook (Aboriginal football) demonstration. Afterwards, everyone is invited to join AFL legend Michael Long on his mission of hope and commitment to reconciliation and a united Australia, by walking to the MCG.
