The Dreaming Festival

The dreaming festival held over the June long weekend (6,7,8 &9th)
is fast coming up.
Australia's largest Indigenous arts Festival is being held for the
4th time, at the Woodford Folk Festival site, 1 hour north of Brisbane.
The Dreaming is a vibrant, exciting and a valuable destination where
local, national and international audiences look forward to their
annual ceremony time along with the most comprehensive showcase
of Indigenous arts from across the country and around the world.
This three day and four night festival, features performing arts
venues, bars, Ceremony grounds, traditional healing, galleries,
rituals, campfire story circles and a mass of stalls, workshop avenue
and food outlets.
Presented by the Queensland Folk Federation ,the program also
includes film & literature components, performing arts, new media
and digital technologies, food & wine fare, comedy, ceremony,
exhibitions, performance artists, physical theatre, Visual arts,
craft workshops, music program, street performers, musicals
and a youth program.
I'm very excited because "No fixed Address" are reforming for 3
performances, its a fantastic program even without that.
I hope to make it on Saturday and take my 3 young boys, I
consider it part of their education.
It should be an excellent time and I would encourage all you
readers in the South East Queensland Area to think about
going to this world class festival in your backyard.
Check out their excellent Web site here
and if your going to be there let me know in the comments.
