The Gathering will also feature a Koori BBQ with emu and kangaroo sausages from Warburton run by members of the Warrior Spirt Arts Collective, delicious food served from the kiosk onsite, and a range of kids' activities. Black Harmony Gathering coincides with Victoria's Cultural Diversity Week, 12-20 March 2016, an annual opportunity for all Victorians to come together and share friendship and culture.

The Good Deed Film Showing and Q&A features Robbie Thorpe as Uncle Lucky and Kynan Brown as Tyrone, an 11 year old delinquent runaway Aboriginal street kid. This short film tells a contemporary story exploring how the two live in everyday urban Melbourne, questioning what culture and traditions they can hold onto and what the future can bring. Join in this premiere showing and post-show Q&A.
