Tent Embassy, Canberra.

Postby Walter Glover » 07 Mar 2021, 21:30

In the leadup to the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Isabel Coe from the Wiradjuri Nation set up a Peace Camp and combined ashes from Canberra's sacred fire to the fire at Victoria Park in Camperdown, New South Wales to promote reconciliation.

Nice timing Walter. Late enough in the day so the fire glow stands out against the dark textured grass.The Old Parliament House lights are also on by way of a conciliatory reply, maybe.
The Tent Embassy must be a jolly place. Sometimes I've walked past it with a camera and tripod balanced on my shoulder and received a wave and some cheerful heckling
