There'll be live music by Jessie Lloyd and Emma Donovan, Jarjum, and Freshwater, plus dance performances and cultural tours of Barangaroo Reserve and Goat Island. This event starts at 11 am and is free to enter.
Pasta Master Cooking Class
If, like me, all your attempts at making fresh pasta have ended with you throwing dough at the wall-perhaps a cookery class is the answer!
Signorelli Gastronomia are holding a pasta making/cooking class,Their in-house Pasta Maestro Marco will demonstrate kneading and other necessary techniques to ensure you create the perfect consistency. Once you have created the perfect pasta, you will learn how to make two classic Italian sauces; boscaiola and napolitana using only the best Italian ingredients.
Be rewarded for your efforts by sharing a meal and a glass of Italian wine at the end of the session. Buon appetitto!
MCA NAIDOC Week Free Film Program
Every lunchtime during NAIDOC week, the MCA is screening a free film made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Themes range from Animated shorts, to tales of police violence and stories of love and betrayal. Stick around on Wednesday the 5th of July for two forums on Aboriginal people and their relationships to language.
