Festival Opening: Sowing The Seeds For Change says
Fire is used in Australia to nourish soil and stimulate the release of seeds for natural growth and regeneration. In this event, you’ll experience sparks of inspiration that ignite your passion to drive positive social change.

In last year’s Festival Opening we heard Dr Noel Nannup remind us that the purpose of being human is to care for everything. This year’s Festival Opening is our chance to prepare the conditions that we all need to create positive change. Join us to journey through the landscapes of Western Australia, hear stories of our past and present, and celebrate caring for our place.

We welcome Vice Chancellor of The University of Western Australia Professor Dawn Freshwater to open this event and Dr Richard Walley OAM to perform the Welcome to Country. Hear from CEO of The Centre for Social Impact Professor Kristy Muir, followed by a range of presentations and artistic performances around the themes of the festival including Delson Stokes, the Hammond Park Primary School Choir, and Dwayne Mallard (Arjaway), to set the tone for the rest of the Festival and its impact for years to come.

Tickets available through TicketsWA.
