The Vigil returns to Barangaroo Reserve, offering an opportunity to gather campfire-side and experience a night of performance and reflection on the eve of Australia Day.

It’s a time to consider Australia’s Indigenous heritage, as well as its colonial institutions and contemporary multicultural migration, from dusk on 25 January until dawn on 26 January.

Hear live music and guests alongside choral and poetry performances, and experience the resilience, beauty and joy of First Nations culture.
