Carriageworks today announced proud Erub psychedelic pop artist Sycco will headline the Carriageworks Nights NAIDOC event on Thursday 6 July from 6 – 10pm. Featuring music, spoken word and poetry, this free event celebrates this year’s NAIDOC week theme ‘For Our Elders’ by creating a space for Elders and young people to gather and share.
At just 21-years-old, Sycco has amassed tens of millions of streams on Spotify and will perform an intimate show with her full band in the Carriageworks Public Space. She is joined by breakout hip hop artist Dobby (Murrawarri) as well as violinist Eric Avery (Ngiyampaa/Yuin/Bandjalang/Gumbangirr) who share their culture through the power of music.
Joining the line-up are multidisciplinary artists Kirli Saunders (Gunai) and Jazz Money (Wiradjuri), who will open the night with compelling spoken word and poetry performances.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy delicious food and beverages by the award-winning Aboriginal owned cafe Indigiearth.
Presented across ten evenings that continue over the next three months, the Carriageworks Nights program invites audiences to gather after dark for a series of artist-led evenings, spanning performance, music, film and food.
