Attica Presents

A day exploring the idea of hope and community.

Attica chef and restaurateur Ben Shewry leads a morning of discussions all about community, resilience and what our future looks like.

Presented free of charge at Queen Victoria Market, the event consists of talks from the likes of author and activist Bruce Pascoe and Indigenous educator Noel Butler, addressing the urgent question that Australia faces today, as it endures fire, flood, drought and other extreme weather events and upheaval: where do we go from here?

Shewry's Attica team will also be serving lunch following Attica Presents for $30 a head.

The current line-up includes:
- Bruce Pascoe, Dark Emu author, historian and activist
- Noel Butler, cultural educator at Nura Gunyu and sustainability advocate
- Dwayne Bannon-Harrison, founder, Ngaran Ngaran Culture Awareness
- Reko Rennie, artist
- Sharon Winsor, founder of Indigiearth
- Leila Nimbadja and Clem Bresson, Maningrida Wild Foods

This event is free to attend, with seating allocated on a first-come, first-served basis on the day. To raise funds for the rebuilding of Noel and Trish Butler’s Nura Gunyu Indigenous education centre in Morton, New South Wales, which was destroyed by fire this summer, Ben Shewry and the Attica team are offering the option of reserving a seat in the front two rows for $25 a seat, and will also be preparing a version of a new dish in development from Attica for lunch. The Attica wattleseed “darl” – a dahl made with desert oak and broom wattleseeds and served with a variety of condiments and bread made by Baker Bleu – can be pre-ordered for $30 a head, with all proceeds going to the Butler family. Pre-orders for the lunch close on Wednesday 25 March.

All proceeds from Attica presents are going to the rebuilding of the Nura Gunyu education centre in Morton, which was destroyed by bushfire at the beginning of the year. Please note: MFWF will not be able to provide individuals with tax deductible receipts, as Attica will be donating on behalf of the event.
