Wominjeka to Arts House for YIRRAMBOI

During May, Arts House will take a spirited look at history, traverse the landscape of the present and cast a gaze to YIRRAMBOI – tomorrow, when three extraordinary female artists present installations and investigations to re-frame notions of belonging, place and community, climate change and water treaties.

As part of if the inaugural YIRRAMBOI Festival – a celebration of First Nations artists from Australia and afar – Arts House will welcome Yup’ik artist Emily Johnson (Alaska), Wiradjuri writer and activist Hannah Donnelly and Worimi filmmaker and storyteller Genevieve Grieves.

Alongside these three artists, Wemba-Wemba and Gunditjmara artist, academic and curator (Sovereignty at ACCA), Paola Balla will host a Supper Club with Johnson, Donnelly and Grieves – where they will discuss matriarchy, healing and story, while uncovering the role of strong women’s voices in disrupting colonial narratives.
