Meeting at the Sacred Edge

So we had the Sacred Edge festival this weekend and it was, as expected, amazing. Loads of creative, inspirational people sharing ideas, music and food. But it’s been a rather exhausting week so I thought I’d just post some pictorial highlights. Hopefully everyone forgives me for sharing their photos here…

The festival began with a smoking ceremony which is the indigenous Welcome to Country.

We had organised an interactive art space which invited participants to Create a Welcome.

One of the symbols we used was a giant nest where feathers and bark were provided for people to weave in. And there was also a Diversity mandala created from coloured shells.

A definite highlight was a moving performance by Archie Roach – ably supported by friend and fellow singer.

And then there was the International Dinner – a Bosnian feast catered for by the lovely folk from Nana’s Catering. Check it out…DessertFood
