The Long Walk 2022
In 2004 former AFL legend Michael Long walked from his home in Melbourne all the way to Parliament House in Canberra, as he decided that something needed to be done about the plight of the Indigenous community. The Long Walk was born, with money raised to support Indigenous education programs across the country. 18 years on, Michael Long and The Long Walk return to Federation Square with live music performed by some of Australia’s leading Indigenous artists, free sport and art activations for the family, and a huge BBQ put on by Scouts Victoria (proceeds shared between Scouts and The Long Walk). The event will again conclude with the Walk To The G, as part of the traditional Dreamtime match between Essendon and Richmond. Limited On-Ground and Hoodie Packages are available to purchase, both include a ticket to the Dreamtime game – go to https://thelongwalk.com.au/ for more details.

This Place by Josh Muir
On the 5th of February 2022, the art world lost a shining light, Josh Muir a proud Yorta Yorta/Gunditjmara man passed away suddenly at age 30. Josh held his culture strong and close to his heart; it gave him his voice and his identity. His artworks echoed his culture in a contemporary setting, and his practice reflected his journey. Using bright colours and bold lines, he often drew together historical events and stories presenting them alongside current narratives in a distinctive graphic style. Before Josh passed away, he was working towards an exhibition and a series of projects at Fed Square in Melbourne. With the blessing of his family, &Gallery Australia and Fed Square will be presenting these projects, with all artworks for sale for the benefit of his children, Jamari & Jyla.

Musica Viva Australia: Choir of Trinity College, Melbourne
Book Tickets Now
The Choir of Trinity College, Melbourne are one of the gems of the city’s musical life. Directed by Christopher Watson, they’ve collaborated with some of the most acclaimed orchestras, ensembles, and conductors from around the world, including esteemed choral directors Jeremy Summerly and Stephen Layton as well as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra led by Sir Andrew Davis. For Viva Edge, they’ll present a program that celebrates contemporary female composers, each work paired with a Tallis piece that deals with similar or complementary subject matter. Highlights include Cecilia McDowall’s 2012 work The Lord is Good, a setting of verses from the Book of Lamentations. Calling for two soprano soloists whose lines entwine against a textured choral backdrop, the work is imbued with a sense of yearning. It’s paired with Tallis’ own exquisite setting of the Lamentations, a more meditative work. Commissioned by the choir and first performed in 2021, the singers will also perform Australian composer Sarah Elise Thompson’s Sundance, a transporting piece of music paired with Tallis’ Te lucis ante terminum I, a valedictory work written to be sung at the last service of the day. Australian composer Brooke Shelley’s A New Commandment will meanwhile follow on from Tallis’ work by the same name to serve as the ideal finale to this special program.
