Clancestry, A Celebration of Country

An annual festival celebrating the arts and cultural practices of the world's First Nations Peoples with a particular focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Clancestry, A Celebration of Country is celebrating the arts and cultural practices of the world's First Nations Peoples with a particular focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Clancestry is about preserving culture, building capacity and pride in all Australians to celebrate the unique cultural heritage of this country. The festival draws on rich spiritual culture and provides a space to connect with other clan groups across the country and the globe. In presenting performances, workshops, free events and conversations the festival moves beyond transactional contact into deeper relationships between all peoples.

This community festival is produced by QPAC with advice and counsel from Elders and community leaders.

The inaugural event in 2013, produced by QPAC in partnership with Nguin Warrup Limited, was awarded a Queensland Reconciliation Award in the Partnerships category.
