Origins

Civic Park, in the heart of Darwin, will become home to Origins – where the science of Charles Darwin will become the subject of a grand scale public art celebration.


Origins will be Darwin’s key event for Darwin 200 - the worldwide celebration of the birth of Charles Darwin. This event is of great symbolic importance to the Darwin community and, as such, has attracted the participation of a number of organisations, both arts and community based.

Featuring some of Darwin’s best young performers from Corrugated Iron, multimedia design students from Charles Darwin University, the Darwin Chorale and the Darwin Symphony Orchestra, Origins looks set to be the most ambitious public work created in Darwin this year.

This is a firework-free and family-friendly event.

Free entry.
Come early and bring a picnic.
