2017 Two Fires Festival

2017 Festival: 12 – 14 May

Friday through Sunday

Theme:  Passing the Torch

Inspiring and empowering the next generation


Two Fires is an unusual festival combining activism with arts.

Since its beginning on 2005, the Festival celebrates the works of a vigorous artistic community, and  Fans the Flames of activism.

Arts and activism blend, each feeding the potency of the other.

It honours and carries forward the spirit of poet Judith Wright’s twin passions, art and activism, particularly environmental and Indigenous activism.  It also celebrates female creativity.

The Festival will be held in May next year, 12th to 14th May, beginning with events for local schools on the Friday and a local writers’ night.

In keeping with the theme of ‘Passing the Torch’, there will be an emphasis on events and activities for children and young people. These will be held across the three festival streams of arts, Indigeneity and environment.

Two Fires Festival of Arts and Activism is an incorporated association. Contact us if you would like to join this group and be part of an exciting and enriching festival.
