Yarra Valley ECOSS invites you to:
Ngulu Festival, Honouring Sorry Day & Our Indigenous Community
Yarra Valley ECOSS on Sunday May 26th, 1pm-5pm.
Ngulu Festival (Ngulu meaning voice in Woi Wurrung) aims to give a voice to The First Nation people. This is the official opening of our translations signage, in Woi Wurrung language, the critically endangered language of our local Indigenous Wurundjeri people.
Featuring famous Indigenous Artists: Kutcha Edwards, Amos Roach, Ganga Giri Boys & Men Didgeridoo workshop, Wayapa Wurrk with Michelle Atwell, Poetry reading from Nikki Madgwick and more….
Event Organiser Leanne Arvanitakis Hall says: “The day offers space for the whole community to learn about our local indigenous culture, to learn some Woi Wurrung language, and take the time to consider how we can cultivate a respectful and prosperous future with our Indignous Community.”
This event is a part of the Indigenous Languages Project funded by the Australian Government Indigenous Languages and Arts Grant that ECOSS received this year.
Yarra Valley ECOSS is grateful for the opportunity to work with local Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Kim Wandin, and Yarra Valley Signs Brad Charman, to create the signage that will be revealed at this event.
Native Bush Meats BBQ will be available for purchase, as well as Bio-Dynamic Vegetable Soup - grown on site at ECOSS.
Coffee and Tea will be available from Coffee Rider and Co.
The grant also offered Yarra Valley ECOSS the opportunity to engage with HICSA (Healesville Indigneous Community Services Association) to undertake a Cultural Audit.
