Badu Gili: Wonder Women

When

Every day, 5:40pm to 8:10pm Friday 29 July to Wednesday 31 August

Badu Gili - meaning 'water light' in the language of the traditional owners of Bennelong Point, the Gadigal people - is a free daily experience that explores First Nations stories in a spectacular six-minute projection on the Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sails.

Watch the sails illuminate with Badu Gili: Wonder Women, a new projection celebrating the work and stories of six female First Nations artists, created in collaboration between the Opera House and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, to mark the Gallery’s 150th anniversary.

The lighting of the sails takes place each day from sunset, 6.30pm, 7pm and 8pm*.
