Join us for another day of celebrating the survival of Australia's First Nations people. Music, stalls, children's activities, food and fun.

We are excited to announce our headline act for 2018. Gawurra Gaykamangu. Gawurra is a Yolngu professional performing artist hailing from Milingimbi (Yurrwi), North East Arnhem Land. With an emotional and resonant voice, Gawurra’s performances deliver a masterful musical sensitivity. http://www.gawurra.com.au/

Belgrave Survival Day volunteer call out

Ever wanted to be apart of something great? Here's your chance.

Belgrave Survival Day is on again in 2018. Each year we try to make it better!! And each year we succeed with the assistance of some wonderful volunteers who are passionate about making this iconic event happen.

You could be one of these volunteers. You will be working alongside other people with an interest in promoting indigenous culture and celebrating the survival of one of the world’s oldest living cultures.

Some of the tasks you can assist with are:
Being part of the crew on the day to bump in and bump out the equipment.
Artist liaison - mixing with and taking care of our line-up of amazing musicians and performers
Collecting donations from the friendly happy crowd who attend
Car Park attendant - - keeping people safe and orderly!
Marshalling during our new "Walk to Belgrave Survival Day",
Drive the minibus to and from the station
We only ask people to help for 1 hr on the day but most people enjoy themselves so much they like to do more. If you think you would like to be a part of the team, perhaps learn some new skills, or make some new friends, please reply to this email to be placed on the volunteers list. We will send you a more comprehensive list of tasks that you can nominate yourself for.
Why not enlist a friend and volunteer together!!
