In May 2018, Red Poles committed to being a regional showcase for Aboriginal art and will be promoting and presenting Aboriginal artists, musicians, workshops, and events that will support the celebration and presentation of both traditional and contemporary Aboriginal art, performance and music.
Red Poles & Spinning Yarns
is an annual Aboriginal Arts Festival, celebrated each year at Red Poles.
The festival was scheduled for May 2020 but had to be postponed to November at this stage because of Covid.
The first of these festivals was held in June 2018 and consisted of :an exhibition titled ‘Stringy Bark and other Stories’, cultural dance performances by Tal Kin Jeri, smoking ceremony and welcome to country with Uncle Moogy Sumner, live music, weaving demonstrations and an art market.
