Share the Spirit


26 Jan 2022 Once Only Event

Share the Spirit is a community-based festival that celebrates the survival of First Nations people in Australia held on January 26 – Survival Day.

Created by Songlines Aboriginal Music in 2003, and growing stronger and stronger every year, Share the Spirit is an important cultural gathering for local and regional communities. It presents a reminder to all Australians that, despite the many great accomplishments Australia has achieved as a nation, Nationhood has come at a cost to the country’s First Nations people.

The festival is a diverse showcase of First Nations music, art, craft and culture, and 2022’s stellar line-up is not to be missed.

Also excited to welcome back the market stalls after a year without them as a result of the pandemic.

Share the Spirit is a free, non-ticketed event that is drug and alcohol-free. As with every Songlines event, we invite all to attend and offer a safe space for everyone.

Event partners include Arts Centre Melbourne and City of Melbourne.
