Time Out says

Reflect on the impact of colonisation in Australia at this overnight vigil at Barangaroo

From dusk on Monday, January 25, until dawn on January 26 a fire will be lit at Barangaroo Reserve for all who wish to gather and contemplate the significance of this time for many First Nations people.

The family-friendly vigil is open to all and will provide a safe space for people to spend time reflecting on the impact of colonisation in Australia, starting on the anniversary of the night before the First Fleet arrived.

Part of Sydney Festival, this will be the third year that a fire will be lit for the Vigil. Previous years have seen musical performances and stories of country from current and future community Elders and an address from Sydney Festival artistic director Wesley Enoch.

The event is free to attend, however to comply with current restrictions, all visitors must book a ticket in advance. You can register your interest here.
