AN anniversary concert will be held on the lawns of Parliament House tomorrow to mark the fifth anniversary of then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s historic National Apology to the Stolen Generations.
The free concert will feature a line up of award-winning Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander musicians, including Microwave Jenny, The Last Kinection and the Black Arm Band.
There will also be music from Archie Roach, Bart Willoughby, Djolpa McKenzie, Emma Donovan, Lou Bennett and Natalie Pa’apa’a.
MCs for the night will be singer Christine Anu and actor Luke Carroll.
The concert will be hosted by the Healing Foundation, which was established on the first anniversary of the Apology to support culturally strong, locally run Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander healing programs around Australia to address the legacy of past policies and practices.
The Apology – Five Years On – Heal our Past, Build our Future will be held from 5.30pm-10pm on the lawns of Federation Mall. This is an alcohol free event.
