Around the Campfire in Adelaide 2017 will feature two of Australia’s hottest Indigenous talents Electric Fields and Scott Darlow on a Sunday afternoon in Port Adelaide.
A day where Australia comes together Around the Campfire to discuss Indigenous health and reconciliation, while celebrating and embracing our traditional Indigenous culture. All money raised will be to assist in the development and operation of a new health promotion program in South Australia and across Australia. The program will be a food and cooking education by Rebecca Sullivan and Warndu. Around the Campfire and Warndu will visit several Aboriginal commuties to conduct workshops for children and parents with the aim of improving food and cooking skills and knowledge.
Master of Ceremonies for the event will be award winning actress Natasha Wanganeen, who will be starring in the 2017 Adelaide Festival production, The Secret River. Adelaide music sensation Electric Fields are performing. Electric Fields are a seamless merging of pop, electronic and soul music. Electric Fields features the rare and beautiful voice of Zaachariaha Fielding – who ‘takes soul to the stratosphere’ – with the brilliance of music producer Michael Ross.
Also performing will be emerging rock singing/songwriter Scott Darlow from WA. When imagining what real Aussie Indigenous rock looks like, Scott Darlow should be what comes to mind.
For more than ten years, Darlow has been one of the country’s hardest working and most successful independent artists. Scott Darlow is undeniably a fixture of the Australian music landscape. The versatile singer/guitarist/didgeridoo player has released 5 albums and is currently working on a sixth. He has toured Australia more times than he can remember, each tour earning him new fans while satisfying the fans made on earlier tours.
Cookbook Author, Sustainable Food Advocate and Cook and Co-Founder of Warndu (meaning “good” in Flinders Ranges Adnyamathanha language) Rebecca Sullivan will have her Native Australian inspired foods available for the crowd to enjoy. Warndu see their food as a way to preserve the traditions, culture and skills of older generations. Enjoying Warndu foods and their philosophies can be a way to “regenerate culture, community, tradition, health and soil and enjoy meaningful meals”.
Supplying much of the fresh produce for the Warndu menu is Something Wild, owned by Daniel Motlop and Motlop brothers. Something Wild are at the forefront of supplying Indigenous food to restaurants and consumers around Australia. They have built strong relationships with Indigenous communities allowing them to promote and supply unique produce from one of the world’s oldest cultures. Not only does this provide their customers with the opportunity to experience these products that celebrate Indigenous culture, but it also provides positive opportunities and outcomes for many rural Indigenous communities.
Entry will be $40 for adults, $25 for concession. BBQ. Beer, wine and soft drink will be available for purchase. Included in the entry fee will be an amazing gourmet BBQ created by South Australia’s Rebecca Sullivan and Warndu, supported by Something Wild native foods outlet.
