I.C.E. Dharug Voices is a year round storytelling series for the Dharug community to celebrate and share culture On-Country from the mountains to the sea. In addition to events that bring more First Nations ideas into public conversations, Dharug Voices support development of new works by local custodians and artists collaborating with Dharug people.
