Hilltops Chinese Heritage in Focus

Apr 19, 2018

Sites significant to Chinese Heritage in Australia will be in focus in the Hilltops Region on Saturday 21st April.

Sydney’s Gallery 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art is leading a community event with the Australian Chinese artists Jason Phu and John Young-Zerunge – in response to the anti-Chinese Lambing Flat riots which took place in the region in the early 1860s.

The Hilltops community are invited to join the artists as they create a tribute at Murrumburrah Chinese Cemetery and Young’s Blackguard Gully. At each site the artists will lead a ceremony of incense burning, offerings and ceremonial gestures to welcome good luck and banish the bad spirits of the past.

Join the artists as they pay tribute to these sites and these historic events.

 Date: Saturday 21 April 2018

Time and Location:
10am at Chinese Cemetery, Murrumburrah (off Burley Griffin Way)
11:30am Blackguard Gully (Blackguard Gully Reserve, Whiteman Ave, Young NSW 2594) Followed by an informal meeting with the artists at the Commercial Hotel, 167 Boorowa St, Young

 Bring: Something that makes noise, a pot or a pan, a whistle, a recorder or a drum.
