Wominjeka Festival 2018

Wominjeka Festival 2018 is curated by Footscray Community Art Centre’s Indigenous Advisory Group: N’arweet Carolyn BriggsUncle Larry WalshAunty Annette XiberrasKaren JacksonRobert BundlePaola BallaVicki Couzens and Genevieve Grieves.

Join us for a weekend of art, music, performance, film, market stalls and activities celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture in Melbourne’s west, and from across the country.

Wominjeka Festival is something that brings all people together – a Ngargee from all places and all people. 

It is a time when the Kulin Nations come together so that we can invite other people to come to respect and honour the work that has been made by our artists. It is also a time for us to come together and celebrate the privilege of being here, to avoid the trap of being angry, and instead bringing conversations to light that embrace the knowledge of the Elders.

Wominjeka 2018 is a collection of songs and stories from all places and all people, where we will revisit the lines walked between youth and Elders.
