Description

The Mowanjum Festival acknowledges the vibrant cultures of Aboriginal people across Australia. The festival is open to the general public from 2pm, with a variety of cultural workshops including didgeridoo playing, boab nut carving and ochre painting conducted in a family friendly environment. Come with the whole family for an evening of culture and the arts. Bring a camping chair or a blanket. Hot food, bush tucker & drinks available. Performers of all ages participate in Junba (traditional song and dance), telling the stories of the Mowanjum people. The revival and performance of these dances are a significant moment of celebration for the local community, and deeply moving to the elders who thought they might never see those dances again. Hosted by the Mowanjum Art and Culture Centre, the festival attracts thousands of visitors who join us to witness and take part in one of Western Australia’s largest cultural celebrations. Tickets go on sale from 1 March 2021 so pack your bags and travel down to Kimberley for this incredible event.
