Kinship Festival

The Kinship Festival is an annual free community event held in Murwillumbah to celebrate National Families Week.

The event is coordinated by Murwillumbah Community Centre’s Indigenous Programs staff and members of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and is supported by local community service organizations.

The event aims to engage Indigenous and Non-Indigenous families in an event to connect families with community, culture, and country  and to link them to local supports through shared learning and participation.

The event celebrates community and offers a range of activities, workshops and performances aimed at children, young people and families.

Local services provider are invited to hold an information stall and facilitate activities on the day. Free market stalls are offered to local Aboriginal businesses to raise the profile of Indigenous artists/craftspeople in the local area.

Indigenous dance groups from across the region are invited to celebrate culture and the transfer of knowledge across generations through the community Corroboree.
