Badu Gili: Wonder Women

Community Event

30 Sep 2023 Daily Event

Badu Gili – meaning ‘water light’ in the language of the traditional owners of Bennelong Point, the Gadigal people – is a free daily experience that explores First Nations stories in a spectacular six-minute projection on the Sydney Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sails.

Watch the sails illuminate with Badu Gili: Wonder Women, a new projection celebrating the work and stories of six female First Nations artists, created in collaboration between the Opera House and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, to mark the Gallery’s 150th anniversary.

The lighting of the sails takes place each day at the top of the Monumental Steps from sunset.
