Wednesday 18 May 2022

Join us for Closing the Gap Day, a free, family-friendly event for people of all ages, hosted by Sonder

Closing the Gap Day is time for all Australians to come together and commit to achieving health equality for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people.

The event provides an opportunity to experience Aboriginal culture and learn about services available across SA to support Aboriginal people to improve their health, wellbeing and other areas of their lives. The annual event brings all of these important services together in one place to share information and provide individuals with the opportunity to have a yarn with the people behind the services.

With hundreds of stalls to browse, a deadly line up of entertainment and a free shared lunch for all to enjoy, there is something for everyone in the family.

This year, you will also find a Nunga Marketplace where First Nations businesses and creatives can sell artworks and other merchandise. To register for a free stall, click here

Kids and young people will have the opportunity to participate in cultural and fun activities as well as ‘Chill-space,’ a special activity area hosted by SA headspace centres.

Live entertainment in the past has included musicians, comedians and dancing groups. This year, Sonder is anticipating another deadly program of performers on the main stage.

What to expect on the day

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander musicians and performers

  • Sean Choolburra, MC and comedian

  • Hundreds of stall holders to browse

  • Fun and educational activities for kids of all ages

  • Nunga marketplace

  • Free shared lunch featuring native ingredients.
