Join The 5 Lands Walk virtual experience | 25 Sep
President of the 5 Lands Walk, Pauline Wright, is disappointed to announce that the enduring nature of the pandemic means it will not be possible to hold celebrations live on 25 September 2021 as they had hoped.
“Each year 5 Lands Walk is a gift to the Central Coast community from over 700 people of the 5 Lands drawn from the Aboriginal community, the multicultural community, the artists and musicians of the Central Coast and the people who have made their homes in the 5 Lands. And we have found a way to make that gift despite the restrictions imposed on us because of the pandemic.
“We need healing and community now more than ever, so we are planning the 5 Lands Virtual Experience to be celebrated over the 5 Lands weekend of the Spring Equinox 2021.”
The 5 Lands Virtual Experience will feature contributions from the artists and musicians of the 5 Lands Walk, our Aboriginal community, a film celebrating our spectacular coastline, Stories of Place – a very special project featuring 12 stories by older members of the community illustrated by 12 school-aged children coordinated by Adrienne Ferreira and Jo Francis, and the Australian launch of a very special film by international award-winning director, producer and composer Yantra de Vilder.
We’ll come together face to face at a safer time in June 2022 but, in the meantime, we hope that you’ll join us for the 5 Lands Virtual Experience on 25 September 2021 so that we can continue connecting people to people and people to place.
Registrations are now open for the 2022 event, with the Walk to be held on 25th June 2022.
