Koori Gras is a vibrant showcase of unique First Peoples culture and community.

Koori Gras Exhibition

In 2016, Tim Bishop researched and compiled a chronology of First Peoples participation in the Mardi Gras Parade. 

The timeline history is a community site and owned space providing a platform for shared stories and history for First Peoples gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, sistergirl, brotherboy, intersex and queer community from Nations wide, their partners and families. 

The Koori Gas exhibition will highlight key images and artefacts from this extraordinary project.

Black Point

Black Point is a large communal table that will be set throughout the week of Koori Gras specifically for First Peoples to have a place to meet during Mardi Gras.

The table will encourage dialogue between strangers and will have a healthy supply of information about local services and events. 

On Saturday 25 February the table becomes the backdrop for a communal “feed” and open mic night for First Peoples and their guests. MC for the night is Allan Clarke, Indigenous Affairs Reporter for BuzzFeed News.
