Sorry Day Stolen Generations Community Gathering
27 May 2023 @10:00AM – 2:00PM AEST
National Sorry Day (26 May) is a day of great significance to Coota Girls Survivors, their families and descendants, and the broader Stolen Generations community. Each year, National Sorry Day commemorates and acknowledges the atrocities faced by First Nations children who were forcibly removed from their families and communities, and the continuing impact of forcible removal and assimilation policies on Stolen Generations Survivors, their families and whole communities.
This year on 27 May 2023, Coota Girls Aboriginal Corporation will host a major event on Tarpeian Lawn (Gadigal Country) overlooking an amazing view of Sydney Harbour. This Sorry Day Stolen Generations Community Gathering aims to provide a space for the continuing important work of truth-telling and healing.
We are partnering with a wide range of First Nations organisations to provide cultural immersion experiences including dance, live music, art, weaving, eco-dying, plant knowledge traditional games and more.
