The Festival of Resilience
The Festival of Resilience is a celebration of the Blue Mountains community as a resilient, creative, connected community, living sustainably within a World Heritage National Park.
As a crowd-sourced festival, we invite you to add your event – read on to find out how.
The Festival of Resilience recognises that Dharug and Gundungurra Traditional Owners have a continuous and deep connection to their Country and that this is of great cultural significance to Aboriginal people, both locally and in the region.
