Opening weekend highlights – Saturday

We are so grateful to everyone who braved the crazy weather on the weekend and joined us for a heartwarming, soul nourishing, intellect enhancing weekend.

The festival kicked off with a beautiful Welcome to Country by Rebecca Phillips of Dja Dja Wurrung.

Then Arnold Zable held the room captive with his stories as he explored the Humanising Power of Story.

The rest of the weekend was jam packed with events, but here are just a few of the highlights from the Festival Hub…
