The arts and cultural practices of the world’s First Nations People will be on show in Brisbane this weekend at Clancestry, a celebration of our oldest living cultures.
“The works of more than 600 artists and craftspeople from across Queensland will be showcased during Clancestry,” Arts Minister Ian Walker said. “Last year’s inaugural event attracted more than 10,600 people and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) is expecting big crowds again this year.
The free opening concert will be held tonight (Friday 21 February) from 6pm at South Bank’s Cultural Forecourt. Guests are invited to bring a chair or mat to settle in for the free concert featuring NITV stars of Move it Mob Style and others.
On Saturday and Sunday,the forecourt will become a hub of art, live music, dancing, weaving, eating and markets. The Saturday evening highlight will see internationally-acclaimed musician Bernard Fanning take to the stage alongside Troy Cassar-Daley and up-and-coming Indigenous artists as part of the free Clancestry Pathways concert.
