The Festival of Resilience
The Festival of Resilience is a celebration of the Blue Mountains community as a resilient, creative, connected community, living sustainably within a World Heritage National Park.
As a crowd-sourced festival, we invite you to add your event – read on to find out how.
The Festival of Resilience recognises that Dharug and Gundungurra Traditional Owners have a continuous and deep connection to their Country and that this is of great cultural significance to Aboriginal people, both locally and in the region.
Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
