The Larrakia people are the traditional owners of the Darwin region. Join us as we ask Elder Aunty June Mills to Welcome us to this blessed and rich Country.
*** COVID19 | PLEASE DO NOT attend this event if you are feeling unwell or displaying flu like symptoms ***
Lighting a fire, you will be invited to write down things that might be causing pain or holding you back. You will then be able to throw them in the fire and have the smoke billow over you.
The Darwin Fringe is excited to offer our community this opportunity to reflect and let go of negative energies. This year has already been hard, weird, scary and enlightening to say the least.
RSVP to help with contact tracing and you could win a special prize pack.
The Darwin Fringe acknowledges the Larrakia People as the guardians of the land on which we create, play and love. We recognise their continued connection with the land, sea, sky and fire.

So we ask that you head out on Friday the 3rd, attend an exhibition opening, play reading or indulge in live music. Tip the artist, splurge at a venue and invest what you can into our wonderful home. There’s so much going on!
– There will be hand santizer available at the event for you to use before, during and after.
– We ask that you apply physical distancing of 1.5m at all times during this ceremony.
– Please RSVP to assist us with contact tracing. Your details will only be shared with health authorities in the instance of an outbreak. PLUS you’ll go in the raffle to win a merch pack.
This event is drug free which includes alcohol, we ask that you bring a water bottle that can be re-filled to help us on our waste free mission.
