Returning for a third year and cementing a new tradition of cleansing and consideration, The Vigil returns to Barangaroo Reserve, offering an opportunity to gather together 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. 

The Vigil is a free event, however to aid COVID safety it is now ticketed and all attendees will be required to book a ticket in advance. Register your interest to be notified when tickets are released in January.
