Welcome to Country

You're invited to witness the opening of The Unconformity featuring a smoking ceremony from Traditional Tasmanian Aboriginal Elder Aunty Patsy Cameron together with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mimigin Dancers from St Joseph's Catholic School in Queenstown. The dancers will perform a ya pulingina welcome dance close to the centre of the festival under the direction of Aboriginal Community worker Fiona Hamilton.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita / Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
