Dyin Nura (Women’s Place)

View a powerful light projection set to illuminate the walls of Old Government House, and enjoy evenings of music and performance this January.

As part of Sydney Festival celebrations, Brenda L Croft’s commanding portrait photography will be projected across Old Government House, illuminating the site’s enduring significance for First Nations women.

Accompanied by live music and dance acts from 6pm – 11pm on Friday 20 January, including bands and an unmissable Jannawi Dance Clan act, this is your chance to gather on Dharug land for communal celebration and reflection.
