Dennis Golding will present a workshop experience that will provide an opportunity for participants to explore ideas of identity and culture by producing a symbol that resonates to an urban experience and/or childhood memory onto a satin mini-cape.
The aim of this workshop is for participants to form an understanding of cultural identity that is often led by different human experiences, race, social class, gender and sexuality

Fambo would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands on which the Festival is held; the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. Indigenous sovereignty was never ceded and resistance to ongoing colonisation continues. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
