INDIGENOUS CULTURAL PROGRAM

Wominjeka Festival 2020

Overview

Wominjeka Festival welcomes you to our 10th anniversary in 2020 as a celebration of the local environment and culture in the West.

Wominjeka is a Ngargee, a Kulin cultural event, teaching and sharing from the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri peoples of the greater Kulin nation.

It is an invitation to gather on the banks of the Maribyrnong to bring community – all people who dwell on Kulin lands – together. A Ngargee, where we are returning to the landscape as celebrated and emerging First Nations artists highlight and discuss environmental relationships and current issues through creating artworks, participating in yarning circles, and hosting ceremony.

Through use of ephemera, we celebrate legacy, responsibility, and custodianship with the earth and its descendants.

The beautiful Maribyrnong river: alive, flowing to the bay. The land of our mother, nurturing and nourishing us. Our creeks, rivers, and billabongs, cleaning the country healing us and healing in their strength. Aboriginal culture is not only a culture of the past; it is alive, dynamic, and present. – Karen Jackson
