National Sorry Day in Yarra

Tuesday 26 May 2020

To mark National Sorry Day, we’re streaming a very special event on Facebook live - to audiences in Yarra, Victoria and beyond!

We’ll be streaming from the culturally and historically significant Stolen Generations Marker in Atherton Gardens Housing Estate Fitzroy.

The event will feature;

  • A Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony with Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Elder Uncle Colin Hunter
  • Performance by Djirri Djirri Dancers
  • Music from Mutti Mutti singer Kutcha Edwards

The event will be held at the Stolen Generations Marker in Atherton Gardens. The Marker, titled 'Remember Me: A Tribute to the Stolen Generations and their Families', was designed by Kamilaroi artist Reko Rennie and is a place of reflection and respectful commemoration.

Everyone is welcome!

Yarra City Council acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people as the Traditional Owners and true sovereigns of the land now known as Yarra. We also acknowledge the significant contributions made by other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to life in Yarra. We pay our respects to Elders from all nations — and to their Elders past, present and future.
