Mark National Reconciliation Week with a celebration of Aboriginal culture
Explore Indigenous history, food, art and dance at the Blak Markets, hosted for the second time this year by the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) in Redfern. You can pick up handmade jewellery, artworks and homewares, or tuck into lunch while you watch live music and performances from the Redfern Dance Company. Develop new skills at the free weaving workshops, or learn how to whip up a healthy bush tucker storm at Aunty Beryl Van-Oploo’s cooking demonstration.
The market coincides with the first day of National Reconciliation Week and the anniversary of the 1967 Referendum. In addition to the regular stalls and entertainment, NCIE will hold a free exhibition reflecting on the campaign.
This market is a uniting force for First Nations peoples in Sydney. Behind the coffee machines and art stalls are young Aboriginal trainees in food preparation, retail and hospitality.
