Latin American and Indigenous artists unite in this celebration of cultural connections

Explore the night sky and uncover the stories behind the constellations at this year's Pachamama Festival. Understand Latin American and Indigenous Australian connections to land and sky through film screenings, art, workshops and storytelling.

Opening night will flow to a melody of Australian and Latino tunes, headlined by the Maroubra Caves Crew featuring Pamela Rodriguez (Teyuna Collective), and Carlos Arango (Cumbiamuffin). There'll also be dance performances and video projections.

Over the course of the festival, you can listen to Indigenous Elders tell stories about the constellations, or attend film screenings such as Warwick Thornton's We Don't Need a Map and Alan Stivelman's Witness of Another World.

The two-day festival also offers workshops in chocolate making, weaving and ecology, along with street food stalls.
