A free concert will be held on Friday, 27 May (5pm-8:30pm) at Barangaroo Reserve to mark the opening of the interactive Sea of Hands installation at Barangaroo and the beginning of National Reconciliation Week 2016.
Hosted by ANTaR, national organisation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander reconciliation and rights, the family-friendly concert will include live performances by Christine Anu and Casey Donovan on Barangaroo Reserve’s Walumil Lawns.
Everyone is invited to bring a rug from home and enjoy a picnic, or purchase something from a range of food stalls in the park for the event.
From Friday, 27 May until Saturday, 4 June visitors to Barangaroo Reserve will be able to participate in the evolving installation, which is a symbol of reconciliation, by planting a hand between 10am and 4pm each day.
The Sea of Hands installation calls on Australians to reflect on Australia’s national identity and the place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in our nation’s story.
