Earlier this week, proud Yuin artist, producer and radio host, Nooky revealed that his social advocacy group, We Are Warriors (WAW) will host their event, Blak Powerhouse, on January 26 at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum. 

The event is free for people of all ages and backgrounds, and will be an evening of live music, contemporary and traditional dance, film, art and panel discussions—turning a day known for great loss and sorrow into one of power and positivity. 

In addition to performances from WAW ambassadors Barkaa, Kobie Dee and Nooky, the event will also feature live visual art from DeadFace, and walk-through art exhibitions from contemporary artist Charlotte Allingham and photographer Luke Currie-Richardson. 

The evening will also host the world premiere of new documentary film, Through The Fire, and will be followed by a panel talk with Nooky, producer Kieran Satour and cinematographer Tyson Perkins. 

We Are Warriors is an all-encompassing cultural movement and platform dedicated to inspiring, equipping and empowering Indigenous youth to succeed by connecting them with First Nations role models. 

The First Nations social enterprise was founded by Indigenous Australian rapper Nooky on January 26 in 2022, with the Blak Powerhouse event also marking WAW’s first birthday.
