Aboriginal arts, crafts, bushfoods and entertainment are heading back to Sydney’s stunning harbour headland park at Barangaroo Reserve on Sunday 24th September. Blak Markets, a dedicated pop-up market showcasing many aspects of Aboriginal culture, will pop-up at Stargazer Lawn on the day, kicking off at 10am and wrapping up at 4pm.
The open-air market will be made up of over 20 stalls selling a diverse range of products and food by Aboriginal makers and producers from around NSW, sitting alongside an opening smoking ceremony by Margaret Campbell from Dreamtime Southern X and a program of live music, dance performances, workshops and traditional Indigenous games.
“We’re excited to invite Sydney locals and visitors back to Barangaroo to soak up free, family-friendly entertainment and browse an eclectic range of handmade items, accessories, jewellery, art, photography, and bush tucker as part of a vibrant experience of Aboriginal culture”, said Peter Cooley, CEO of organisers First Hand Solutions. “The Black Markets is a great chance to buy locally made, one-of-a-kind gifts and products directly from the people who made them in the knowledge that 100 per cent of the profit goes to Aboriginal communities”.
