If, this January 26, you're looking for a thoughtful way to reflect on the impact of the arrival of the First Fleet and Australia's colonisation on its First Nations people, you should join the folks from Sydney Festival the evening prior.

For the third year running, the festival will be running a vigil at Barangaroo Reserve from dusk on Monday, January 25 through to dawn on Tuesday, January 26.

There will be performances and talks from First Nations artists happening throughout the night, as well as reflections from members of the Indigenous Australian community.

You can drop by at any time or stay all night — if you're in it for the long haul, make sure you bring warm clothes. Feel free to take some mates with you, but the event is also a good opportunity to meet new people and have conversations around the anniversary and what it means for all Australians.

The Vigil is free, but you must register your interest before attending as well as wear a mask. You can register over here.
