Clancestry 2015

clancestry2015

Clancestry, a Celebration of Country is an annual week-long festival celebrating the arts and cultural practices of the world’s First Nations Peoples, with a particular focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

The festival draws on rich spiritual culture and provides a space to learn about, and connect with, clan groups across the country and the globe. In presenting performances, workshops, free events and conversations, the festival celebrates a diverse and stimulating mix of the traditional and contemporary.

Since the inaugural festival in 2013, Clancestry has become one of QPAC’s signature annual events, recognised for its collaboration and interactions between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, artists, industry and the public.

Some of the guest curators this year are friends I have known through  work with First Nations peoples. Fred Havea Bulanyi Leone Dame-Nadine McDonald-DowdNancy Bamaga
