Sydney Festival’s Blak Out program returns in 2022.
In 2017 Wesley Enoch curated the first Blak Out Program for Sydney Festival. As Wesley said back then “Blak Out is a term used to describe a gathering of First Nations Australians” and during his tenure as Festival Director he did just that, bringing Australia’s finest First Nations artists together in Sydney to share their perspectives on the world.
In 2022, Festival Director Olivia Ansell and I are excited to build on this legacy and take Blak Out into the future by sharing the most urgent, important and celebratory works by First Nations artists. Right now, so many of these artists are standing up and demanding their stories be heard…
The future is Blak.
