From First Nations to newcomers and everyone in between, New Beginnings Festival is where you belong.

New Beginnings Festival is the unique celebration of the creative work of diverse artists, performers and craftspeople including First Nations, refugee and migrant backgrounds. 

Now entering its eighth year, this family-friendly festival will once again liven up Darling Harbour at the Australian National Maritime Museum.

Following its successful debut, the well-loved staple of the arts & culture calendar in Sydney, will return for its second year as part of the Sydney Festival.

New Beginnings Festival is a celebration of hope, unity and new beginnings for refugees and people seeking asylum; a festival that aims to counter negative sentiments and encourage people to celebrate the creative contributions artists and communities bring to Australia – regardless of their background.
