Sorry Day in the North – Community Sharing and Healing Event

May 26, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

National Sorry Day takes place on Friday, 26 May. Sorry Day is a day to remember the past policies of forced removal of Aboriginal children from their families and the ongoing impact on the Stolen Generations. It is also a day to commemorate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s history and celebrate their survival, culture and community.

Sorry Day Community Sharing and Healing event will be held at the Stolen Generation Memorial and Healing Garden at Stebonheath Park, Andrews Farm.

We will begin at the Stolen Generation Memorial and Healing Garden with a Welcome to Country by Allan Sumner, and elders will lead a short walk towards the memorial. Leaders from the community will speak and a ceremonial tree planting will take place.

Festivities will continue at the John McVeity Centre, with music, activities for all ages and a free community BBQ. Marra Dreaming and Aboriginal Contemporary Arts workshops will run, with live entertainment from Hannah Yates & Anton Seaborn, Nathan May and Scott Rathman Jnr.

Limited bus pick-ups are available on the day, please phone 08 8255 3323 to book.
