Time - All Day
This is a third-party event not organised by Permablitz. We've added it because we reckon it looks pretty good!
YIRRAMBOI means tomorrow in the shared languages of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations.
YIRRAMBOI First Nations Arts Festival is a ten day feast of arts and events showcasing the diversity and individuality of First Nations artists leading 21st Century contemporary arts practice.
Melbourne will experience a city wide ‘blakout’ across the 10 days of the Festival, as First Nations visionaries bring dance, music, visual art, film and discussions to our laneways, art spaces and public places.
YIRRAMBOI will present more than 60 events, for all ages and interests, with many of them free.
Highlights include Weelam Ngalut (our place) at the Meat Market featuring a program of contemporary arts and Tooronga Baban Nganjin (New Mums Ceremony) on Mother’s Day: a traditional welcome ceremony for bubs aged newborn to two years.
Among the oh-so-many amazing things on the program, there’s a Conversation with Bruce Pascoe worth mentioning – free, next week (10/5) and an opportunity for those who haven’t read Dark Emu to learn about the pre-settlement agriculture of local indigenous peoples.
The City Of Melbourne, supported by Creative Victoria, is pleased to introduce YIRRAMBOI in collaboration with the Elders Council of Kulin Nations people.
Rise, Unite and be Inspired!
