Lithgow Council has announced a new community event for January 2024. The Forged by Fire Festival will explore the complex relationship with fire and how people work with it. It will be an opportunity for the community to share their stories and experiences with fire and what they have learned from them.

With the event to be held at the height of summer and amidst El Nino it will be a space to express some of the fears people have about fire and share strategies to address them.

The event will highlight the incredible ways to work with fire through performances, food stalls, artworks, projections, and lots of other creations made through the mastery of fire.

There will be displays, workshops and activities that share how to manage our landscapes and homes to live with fire. Fun art activities are also planned for children to do while learning about fire.

This project is proudly funded by the NSW Government through the Reconnecting Regional NSW Community Events program.
