Our present holds our past...

A fundamental belief of the festival committee is that while we are contributing to our local Australian culture that has imported/colonial features it is most important that we respect and acknowledge First Nations peoples and recognise their continuous connection to Country, community and culture. The festival seeks to incorporate and honour the sharing of traditions, songs and stories.

‘Always Was, Always Will Be’ reminds us of the importance of the truth-telling which is key to reconciliation, and to creating a vibrant, shared present and inclusive future. Robert Burns was a passionate advocate for human rights, with a strong affinity to nature, and a creator/collector of local story… celebrating his works resonates; ‘A Man’s A Man for A’ That’.

Locally we also have the legacy of pioneering Scots, Isabella & James Dawson, whose championing of the Aboriginal cause in the 19th Century gives us a benchmark for the 21st Century. As our community continues to diversify we seek to celebrate the unique heritage of where we love and live.
