Brisbane Festival celebrates NAIDOC week

Brisbane Festival has launched and this year’s program has a large First Nations program across music, dance, theatre, cabaret, and circus.

As we celebrate NAIDOC week, we would like to take this opportunity to showcase this program of stellar work that has been curated under the care and guidance of our Indigenous Advisory Group and acknowledge more than 160 First Nations artists involved in this year's festival. We pay our respects to the elders and Traditional Owners of this glorious country that we have the honour of working on, to tell stories and share experiences with our community.

We look forward to delivering a Festival that connects deeply with this country and opens our hearts to a brighter and more compassionate future. We welcome you to Brisbane Festival 2022.
