Yarn Circle: Language is Culture + IndigiTUBE Screening
The Festival will kick off with a facilitated yarn hosted by YARN Australia. This year’s yarn will focus on the effects of colonisation on Australia’s first peoples and their language, asking the question "what does the revitalisation of Indigenous languages look like?". Hear from invited elders and special guests, ask questions and share perspectives in this safe and facilitated yarn circle.
The session will include a screening of short films in language from the recently launched Indigitube platform.
YARN Australia’s aim is to build connection and unity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians. Each year this session gets bigger with more people yearning for a deeper understanding of the world's oldest living culture.
Entry to the Yarn Circle is by donation, which goes directly to Yarn Australia and supports their ongoing workshops. Please register for a ticket below.
The Yarn session will be followed by the film sessions Ukamau y Ke, as well as markets and a free evening performance.
Pachamama this year will collaborate with Addi Road’s Street Food Markets, featuring food from around the world prepared by refugee and asylum seeker communities.
SUPPORT LOCAL TALENT
Building on last years success we’ll be having on Saturday night craft market, featuring local artists offering unique crafts, bound together by the common thread of environmental and indigenous sustainability, embodying a core ethos of Pachamama Festival.
