Solstice Celebration - Winter at Federation Square

You are invited to walk with us through spoken words and illuminated books, into folklore and newly created cultural mythology, warmed by market surrounds.

Take one of the hand-made lanterns from the stage and participate in a beautiful lantern dance of a thousand twinkling lights.

In Walking Through Words, acclaimed choreographers, Tony Yap and Yumi Umiumare lead a performance with nine community groups. Men from the Afghan community will share letters to the world and their families in the Afghan Men’s Shed and a group of young African women present Unveiling the Veil, where they respond through poetry to public perception about the Hijab. These Are The Projects We Do Together will entertain the kids with torch-led guerilla lighting, so get the family together to celebrate the Melbourne's winter solstice.

Where: Main Square When: Saturday 23 June, 5pm - 8pm Price: Free
