The Sydney Opera House's free, nightly First Nations sails lighting returns from Friday 23 April, with a vibrant new projection that celebrates the work and stories of 6 female First Nations artists.

Badu Gili: Wonder Women, curated by Art Gallery of New South Wales Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, Coby Edgar, is a creative collaboration between the Opera House and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, to mark the Gallery's 150th anniversary.

The six-minute animation weaves together the work of artists from across Australia: Wadawurrung elder Marlene Gilson; Yankunytjatjara woman Kaylene Whiskey; Luritja woman Sally Mulda; and Western Arrarnta women Judith Inkamala and Marlene Rubuntja and the late Kamilaroi woman Elaine Russell.

The projection will appear hourly on the Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sail each night from sunset, enabled by the NSW Government’s Culture Up Late initiative.
