Four Thousand Fish, Barangaroo
- 26 January 2018
- 4:00pm – 9:00pm
Barangaroo Reserve NSW
In 1790, British colonists hauled four thousand fish in one day, disrupting the delicate ecosystem the Aboriginal fisherwomen of Warrane (Sydney Harbour) had preserved for millennia and undermining their ability to provide food for their communities.
As part of Sydney Festival 2018, this Australia Day you are invited to recreate “four thousand fish” using frozen water from Nawi Cove. At sunset, nestled in an artist’s interpretation of a traditional nawi (bark canoe), the ice sculptures will be returned to the water.
Join us in celebrating and commemorating Barangaroo, the influential woman after whom the site is named, and the resilient women of Warrane.
