Purrumpa: an empowering forum for First Nations Culture

The largest national gathering of First Nations arts and culture in 50 years will held on Country in October.

Purrumpa is a Kaurna language word meaning ‘to flourish or blossom’, and so is a fitting match for a new event to be staged by the Australia Council for the Arts in October.

Purrumpa will be a national gathering of First Nations arts, artists and culture, the largest ‘coming together’ for the sector in 50 years.
