It launched the careers of many dancers and performers, and raised the profile of Aboriginal dance on the international stage.

Glebe Society’s Aleppo pine has been on the move
Posted on 1st January 2021

In 2015, the Glebe Society donated a Gallipoli Pine to the University of Sydney and it was planted by the Vice-Chancellor, Dr Michael Spence, on the eve of Anzac Day 2015. Unfortunately, the site where the sapling was planted was right in the middle of what was to become the Chau Chak Wing Museum, which unites the Nicholson and Macleay Museums and the University art collection under one roof. So ‘our’ pine was sent away on an extended vacation but has now been replanted near the main University gate and in front of the new Museum.
