Join Michael Long for “We Walk Together 2017” on Saturday 27th May at Federation Square in Melbourne. Get there early, as we will be holding a Welcome to Country, followed by a Flag Raising Ceremony from 1pm.
You’ll then be entertained by some of Australia’s best Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander talent including our MC Joe Williams, Casey Donovan, Indigenous Hip Hop Projects, Soul Singers and Jayden Reid, along with plenty of sporting and cultural activations. Some of Melbourne’s delicious food trucks will also be there.
Of course this will all lead to the Walk to the MCG led by Michael Long, where Essendon will take on Richmond in the traditional Dreamtime at the ‘G game – now an iconic fixture on the AFL calendar.
Those who purchase The Long Walk package will be given the amazing opportunity to walk onto the MCG arena with Michael Long before the game, a memory to truly cherish!
In 2017 we have created a range of packages to give more people the opportunity to support The Long Walk to empower and develop Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander young people.
Join us to celebrate the beautiful culture and amazing talent of Australia’s First Nations peoples.
