20,000 hands are to be installed at Barangaroo by Sunday June 5. Come down to Barangaroo Reserve and help plant a hand
"The design for this years Sea of Hands display was created by Brenda L Croft, a Gurindji/Malngin/Mudpurra artist and researcher. The design is inspired by historical portraits depicting Eora men, including Bennelong, one of Barangaroo's husbands, in customary ochre body markings.
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.
