This event is a dreaming of a sustained future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait lslander people in the Alpine Shire. It honours the strength and vitality of First Nations culture, its connection to Country, and the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The day will be led by Lee Couch, a proud Aboriginal woman from the Gamilaroi tribe, residing in the Alpine Shire.

A Welcome to Country from Uncle Alan Murray will be the heart of the event, followed by a dance performance from Wagarra.

Cultural activities will include music (Brett Lee, proud Ngiyampaa Man), a Yidakki performance (Ash Dargin, Larrakia Country), an art workshop (Arkira Armstrong, Gamilaroi women), cultural healing (Wyarta Warna Ngangkari), and meditation (Lee Couch, Gamilaroi tribe).

Dumu Café (Thamarrur Youth, Bright) will cater for the event.
