At this year’s Leaps and Bounds Music Festival, the Smith Street Dreaming project will be featured again, celebrating “indigenous pride, awareness, and community.”
Focusing on community spirit, the announcement stated that “Smith Street Dreaming is the biggest street celebration of long-standing indigenous history on the calendar, bringing together many mobs on the corner of Stanley & Smith Street, Collingwood.”
“Taking place on Saturday 22 July, the annual event will play host to some of Australia’s best indigenous talent featuring live sets from Frank Yamma, Emma Donovan, Yung Warriors, hip hop dance group Indigenous Hip Hop Projects, Jindi Worabak traditional dancers, and MC Shelley Ware (Marngrook Footy Show),” the announcement said.
This will be the events fifth celebration.
Jason Tamiru, Smith Street Dreaming Producer, said in the announcement today “Since the conception of Smith Street Dreaming relationships have improved with the Smith Street Dreaming motto – One Street, Many Mobs, One Community – becoming a reality. Personally, I have been involved with Smith Street Dreaming from the onset and I have seen it firsthand be embraced and accepted by all stakeholders, investors and most of all our community. It a very special Festival one of those I am proud to be part of.”
