There are two parts to this year’s incredible celebration: A FILM and a CELEBRATION, recorded live at Sydney Opera House.
A 15-minute FILM -
“Would you cuddle up with a jurru? Do you have a tjikiwan dog at home? And what would you do if you saw a sneaky kyembal?" asks ILF Ambassador Jessica Mauboy.
Jump on a virtual plane to Barunga in the Northern Territory, Rubibi (Broome) in north Western Australia and Weipa on the Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, to find out!
This is your chance to journey across the country, hear First Nations peoples’ stories and learn some new words in Kriol, Yawuru and Thaynakwith Languages.
You'll join a group of young, talented songwriters with their ILF mentor Justine Clarke, for a special performance of their song, Shordi Krik, at the Barunga Festival in the Northern Territory. Find out why life is sweet at Shordi Krik.
In Rubibi, your senses will come alive as you discover there are more than four seasons a year, and on the Cape York Peninsula, when you look, what will you find? You will have to wait and see!
A 45-minute CELEBRATION (following the FILM)
After the FILM, come inside the iconic Sydney Opera House for a 45‑minute LIVESTREAM celebration of storytelling and song with ILF Ambassadors and superstars, Justine Clarke, Josh Pyke, Gregg Dreise, and more!
The kids from Barunga Remote Community School will perform Shordi Krik with Justine Clarke and Josh Pyke will have everyone busking to Words Make the World Go Around.
This is an action packed, joyful performance, sharing stories, music, song, movement, and languages. It's an engaging adventure for early learners, primary students and adults alike.
