ANTaR’s iconic ‘Sea of Hands’ coming to Barangaroo for National Reconciliation Week

Today we announced that ANTaR would bring its interactive symbol of reconciliation, the Sea of Hands, to Barangaroo Reserve for National Reconciliation Week 2016 in partnership with the Barangaroo Delivery Authority.

The Sea of Hands event begins with a free Opening Night Concert on Friday, 27 May (5:00pm - 8:30pm) featuring live performances by Christine Anu and Casey Donovan on Barangaroo Reserve’s Walumil Lawns, where the first part of the installation will be illuminated.

Thousands of visitors are expected to take part in the evolving installation at Sydney’s spectacular new headland park between Friday, 27 May and Sunday, 5 June to reflect on Australia’s national identity and the place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in our nation’s story.

Visitors can participate by planting a hand between 10am and 4pm each day until Saturday, 4 June.
