Description

January 26 is “Survival Day”, an important time when the community gathers to celebrate the resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The day serves to acknowledge and reinforce the present and the future of our cultures.

Survival Day embodies the reality that Indigenous cultures are strong, with much to be positive about despite the negative effects of colonisation.

Proudly hosted by Tandanya NACI and Kura Yerlo Inc., Survival Day 2016 will again be held at the Semaphore Foreshore in Adelaide, with support from the Port Adelaide & Enfield Council.

As cited by Tandanya NACI’s CEO Timothy Ritchie, “The acknowledgment of Survival Day is paramount to our culture, to ensure our community is further strengthened and empowered by all we embrace and stand for.”

Like many observances held across Australia, Tandanya National’s Survival Day will offer FREE performances from the likes of Electric Fields, Big Sexy, Hannah Yates, Yorke Band and Jessica Wishart, presentations, information, workshops and much more.

Commencing at 11am, there will be a full day’s program until 6pm, where everyone is invited to bring their family and friends to enjoy a cultural fun-filled day of entertainment, culminating in a spectacular fireworks display
