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.

The Sunday Stir at the Maritime Museum

Mix it up at the Maritime Museum for an afternoon of art, storytelling, music and culture on Sunday 21 March from 12 – 5 pm.

Experience local contemporary artists sharing their stories of migration through drawing, poetry, story and song in a vibrant and interactive program that celebrates Australia’s multicultural society.

The artists will perform throughout the museum, interacting with visitors and deepening their experience and understanding of the journeys we make, what we take with us and what we leave behind.
