Show Up: A Celebration of Black Music

Final Friday

08 July 2022
6.30pm - 9.30pm

To celebrate NAIDOC week and farewell Jenn Nkiru’s show ⁠Rebirth Is Necessary, join us for an evening of hip hop, culture, party, and performance by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, curated by Shannon Brett.

Dance to classic 1990s RnB and hip-hop tunes spun by DJ Baddz, and enjoy performances by Meanjin-based First Nations hip-hop dancers Ziggy Wade, Dylan Wotton, and Damian Mulligan. 

For a deadly NAIDOC night out, the party will continue at Ivory Tusk (formally Woolly Mammoth) with the annual Big NAIDOC Afterparty hosted by Black Diamond Entertainment.

This is a safe space for all black and brown people, and LGBTQIA+ and gender-diverse communities. Respect from allies in attendance is necessary.
