In 2020, the Black Lives Matter movement leapt out of the United States and proliferated around the globe; Australia was no exception, but our movement has its own unique history and identity.

Indigenous Sovereignty, Police Brutality and State Oppression are at the core of the Blak Activist movements in this country. BLAKTIVISM presents this truth-telling with a powerful line-up of living legends and rising voices of First Nations musical activists in this one-night only special event.

Starring legendary musical activists that have redefined the voice of activism music across decades and to the present day, BLAKTIVISM is a galvanised chorus of an unstoppable movement.

Stand up and join them.

Featuring Bart Willoughby, Tasman Keith, Emma Donovan, Deline Briscoe, Barkaa, Kristal West and more.

Yalanji Artistic Director, Deline Briscoe and Musical Director, Airileke (PNG) create a place where healing, culture, fire, power, truth, beauty, light and shade are given space.

7pm: Healing Ceremony 
7:30pm: Sorong Samarai
