SACREDEDGE FESTIVAL

Festival of arts, music and ideas

April 30 – May 2, 2021

Sacrededge is our response to a sometimes harsh and fearful world. It is an opportunity to connect with people from diverse backgrounds. Rather than debate and argue about issues Q&A style, this unique festival listens to people from the edge… their stories, music, poetry.

Our presenters, artists & performers come from a range of backgrounds – Indigenous, Refugee, LGBTIQ folk, Carers for the Earth. They are the voices from the edge who are vulnerable and not normally heard.

With a bunch of people from different spiritual traditions and none, people who love stories, justice, ideas, music and the arts, community is created.

Sacrededge is a lived experience of how we can treasure each other in all our glorious diversity and find our hearts and minds expanded and enriched.

Many of our booked artists for the cancelled 2020 festival will be available to commit to the 2021 festival. As soon as we are sure that we can proceed safely, we will be sure to get the news out!

What People Say about Sacrededge...

Thank you for all your magnificent work for Sacred Edge. Your vision and commitment are truly profound. We are all the richer for being part of the weekend. I learnt so much, and feel quite restored. I know many people contribute to the success of such events, we are indeed blessed. Thanks again, it truly was a celebration.  Maryann Brown

Just wanting to say I had a wonderful and life changing weekend with you all . It far exceeded my expectations amazing speakers and a loving and warm atmosphere. I can assure you I will be back next year.  Janette James
Brilliant weekend.  So many highlights the tremendous speakers, fantastic music (especially watching the Wilsons with Sam and Maeve) great venue, such a welcoming group of people, the homemade  chocolate hedgehog, great place to stay. Jon Graham and Belinda Jack
For all the talk of diversity, inclusion and welcome, rarely have I experienced the unique mix that this festival, in its fifth year, offers…There’s a little bit of magic happening down by the water…xxx…  Daniel Witthaus
Thank you Sacred Edgers for another inspiring weekend to challenge our preconceptions, widen our horizons and deepen our faith (and of course for the planning and hard work) and to all those who made themselves vulnerable to our insensitivity and misunderstanding we are deeply grateful.  Don Bartlett
