Healing and reconnection at former hospital site
Tuesday 26 November
Frome Park, off Frome Road | 9:30am – 10:00am
Members of the public are invited to join the Kaurna Nation Cultural Heritage Association and Lot Fourteen for a smoking ceremony with the Kaurna community next week to heal the former Royal Adelaide Hospital site and to celebrate re-connection to our Country.
The Lot Fourteen Smoking Ceremony will be held by the Kaurna Nation Cultural Heritage Association by between 9.30am and 10am on 26 November at Frome Park on Frome Road in Adelaide City, between Lot Fourteen and the Adelaide Botanic High School.
Premier Steven Marshall and other special guests will attend the ceremony, which will be a milestone for the Lot Fourteen project and recognition of Kaurna’s important role in its development.
It will be an opportunity for the public to join the Kaurna community in reflecting on and celebrating its continuing cultural strengths.
Lot Fourteen is the future home of the Australian Aboriginal Art and Cultures Centre and is adjacent to Karrawirra Parri (River Torrens), an important area for the Kaurna community. The neighbourhood provides new opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-indigenous people to engage in culture, build economic growth and reconcile communities.
Lot Fourteen is being developed by Renewal SA on behalf of the State Government.
