Marram-nganjinu biik-gurrin (We are Country) Cultural Summit | Yirramboi First Nations Arts Festival | 08 – 10 May 2017 | Melbourne VIC, Australia

Marram nganjinu biik-gurrin is a place and time where First Nations leaders from across Australia and the world will shake up and shape the future of arts and cultural practice in community and on country. Held on the lands of the Kulin nation in Melbourne, Marram-nganjinu biik-gurrin, led by ACCELERATE alumni Jacob Boehme and Peter White, is a ground-breaking international event consisting of a First Nations Cultural Summit and Creation Lab.

The three-day Cultural Summit (08-10 May) will help forge a new direction of leadership in the cultural and creative sectors. First Nations leaders from Australia and internationally will explore where First Nations sit within the broader cultural ecology, and champion ways to employ the inherent rights First Nations have in managing and defining their individual and collective cultural and creative futures.

Running in tandem with the Summit, the five-day Creation Lab (08-12 May) invites First Nations artists to challenge the role and influence of western performance methodologies and explore dramaturgy through the cultural lens of First Nations peoples. Creation Lab will provide a space for international First Nations collaboration, exchange and the seeding of new works.

Marram-nganjinu biik-gurrin (We are Country) Cultural Summit will take place from 08-12 May 2017 in Melbourne VIC, Australia as part of YIRRAMBOI First Nations Arts Festival.
