Corroboree Sydney is a celebration of Australia’s rich cultural heritage, featuring leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, writers, dancers and musicians showcasing their creativity and sharing their stories in over 100 events. 

Offering a unique experience of Indigenous culture at significant sites around the Sydney Harbour, Corroboree Sydney has something for eveyone.

Partnering with the major cultural institions of Sydney - the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Australian Museum, the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Royal Botanic Gardens, and the State Library, are presenting a huge array of arts events. There's guided walks, bush-tucker talks, boat building demos, exhibitions, films, artist talks and so much more.

Check out the Corroboree Sydney website - its a powerful beast and allows you to sort accross the performing arts, visual arts, event type and location. 

The festival is initiated and delivered by Indigenous people; its a collaborative endeavour, involving Sydney’s premier arts and cultural organisations in an internationally distinctive festival celebrating Indigenous culture in all its diversity.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
