Petition to National Folk Festival, Canberra

109 Signatures Goal: 250

The Coorong has been deemed “unsafe” for dancers and will NO LONGER be used as a Dance Venue at the National Folk Festival in Canberra. Please see: http://www.folkfestival.asn.au/program/2010-dance-information/ for the NFF explanation.

Many believe this is just an excuse to turn the Coorong into a concert venue at the expense of the dancers. While the NFF has provided an enlarged Mallee, the Oasis will be a marquee (tent), questionably suitable for dancing within during the heat of a Canberra day in March.

The dance programme at the 2010 National Folk Festival in Canberra, Australia, has been cut resulting in a very limited Australian/Celtic content remaining.

The Colonial Ball was dropped, but has been reinstated - off-site.

Please sign to petition the NFF to: -

Reinstate the Coorong as a dance venue

Ensure the Colonial Ball is retained as part of the NFF Programme and keep it on-site.

Reinstate a full Colonial/Celtic Dance Programme to the NFF

It is vital that the NFF is made aware of the feeling of the dancers.
