Indie Yarns – First Nations Q&A



Sat 3 Sep, 12:00pm | 2 hours Redfern Community Centre

Sydney Fringe would like to invite you to our special event Indie Yarns; a First Nations led Q&A that asks the question: How can we celebrate our First Nations stories in an authentic way?

Recently there’s been a much needed push for First Nations voices on Australian stages, but are we getting it right? Indie Yarns gives you the chance to listen to some of Sydney’s leading independent First Nations artists; they’ll talk about their creative process, staying true to culture and how they make stuff happen in a competitive industry.

Where: Redfern Community Centre, Performance Space (Upstairs)
When: 12pm – 2pm, Saturday 3rd September 2022

Indie Yarns is perfect for artistic mob that want to get inspired and everyone who wants to be a part of the big conversation.

Our panellists include:
Bjorn Stewart – Filmmaker, Creator, Screen Actor
Sandy Greenwood – Writer, Producer, Performer (Dogged, Matriarch),
Angeline Penrith – Actor (Mother Mountain, Wayside Chapel),
Nana Miss Koori – Drag Queen, Creator (Mardi Gras)
Jodie Welsh-Choolburra – Brolga Dance Academy Founder and member of the First Nations Advisory Panel at Sydney Fringe.

Sydney Fringe prides itself on being an open access festival, and we hope that Indie Yarns will empower young First Nations artists to get creative and speak up!
