Acknowledgement of Country

Dharug

Bayadyinyang budyari Dharug yiyura Dharug Ngurra.
Bayady’u budyari Dharug Warunggadgu baranyiin barribugu.
Bayady’u budyari wagulgu yiyuragu Ngurra bimalgu Blacktown City. Flannel flowers dyurali bulbuwul.
Yanmannyang mudayi Dharug Ngurrawa. Walama ngyini budbud dali Dharug Ngurra Dharug yiyura baranyiin barribugu.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this Land, the Dharug people, and their continued connection to Country.
We pay our respects to Elders from yesterday to tomorrow.
We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Blacktown City where the flannel flowers still grow proud and strong.
We will walk softly on this land and open our hearts to Country as the Dharug people have for tens of thousands of years.

Musicians | The Western Sydney Jam Session

The Western Sydney Jam Session at Blacktown Arts Centre brings together some of the biggest talents from across Western Sydney. Here are some of the musicians we’ve met along the way – connect with them!

“As artists, it is our duty to ensure that the future of our scene is cultivated. Music is wasted if it’s shared with no one. This is our way of giving back to the area that we grew up in. The Western Sydney/Blacktown area has so many amazing talented musicians! Let’s share our music, always.”
– Eric Fortaleza
