As part of Yirramboi First Nations Arts Festival
Marram-nganjinu Biik-gurrin, in the Woi Worrung/Boon Wurrung languages of the Kulin nation, means “we are country”. It symbolises the strong bonds of First Nations cultural and creative practice to country, culture and community.
Over 100 First Nations cultural and creative leaders from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Taiwan, Tonga, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, USA, Guam, Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Wales and Scotland came together on the lands of the Kulin Nation at Marram-nganjinu Biik-gurrin Cultural Summit and Creation Lab during YIRRAMBOI.
Marram-nganjinu Biik-gurrin was presented by ACCELERATE alumni, and proudly supported by the British Council and the Australia Council for the Arts, in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Create NSW and the City of Melbourne.
