Ngulu Festival is the Official Opening of The Creation Story Mural and Soundscape to be at Yarra Valley ECOSS on Saturday 29th May: 1pm-5pm, 711 Old Warburton Rd Wesburn.
We are proud to host one of the first Wurundjeri Mural’s and Soundscapes of it’s kind in Yarra Ranges Council on Wurundjeri Country.
We hope you can come along to this special event and enjoy a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony with Aunty Kim Wandin, enjoy the beautiful sounds of Pirritu’s songs and have a dance along to musical performance with DRMNGNOW and feast on locally made cuisines. There will be more to be announced soon.
Yarra Valley ECOSS has been working alongside Aunty Kim Wandin, Woiwurrung Elder of the Wurundjeri People and Nikki Browne, Indigenous Artist and proud Bidjara woman of Queensland Central Highlands, to create this Mural. We have also collaborated with RMIT Industrial Design students to turn the Mural into a Soundscape for a full immersion of this Wurundjeri Dreamtime Story, this will be a permanent installation where visitors to ECOSS can interact with, to gain an understanding and preserve the Wurundjeri culture.
We are very grateful for the opportunity to celebrate this amazing project with you in the form of the Ngulu Festival to be held at ECOSS on May 29th- as part of Reconciliation Week.
Thank you to Yarra Ranges Council Arts & Heritage grant for funding this project, Aunty Kim Wandin, Nikki Browne and RMIT Industrial Design students. We would also like to thank Upper Yarra Community Enterprise and Yarra Ranges Council for Sponsoring the Community PA and sound engineer that will be used at this event.
