Sounds wonderful and I'm planning on coming but is there a program/timetable for the performances and talks?

Hi Gary, official proceedings kick off at 10:30am, with a Welcome to Country by Aunty Carolyn Briggs and Aunty Di Kerr, along with welcoming speech by the Manager of Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, Caroline Martin.

Following this we will have our traditional dance groups performing through to 12pm. Afterwards proceedings move from out on the Museum Plaza to inside the Museum where the Kutcha Edwards starts us on our concert at 12pm, following then by the Yung Warriors and a number of other Victorian Koorie artists, with special performances.

The concert finishes is scheduled to finished just prior to 4pm. Throughout the day we will also have children's activities from 11am – 3pm.

We hope this helps you plan your day!
