YIRRAMBOI, Australia’s premier First Nations art and cultural event, is returning to Melbourne in 2019. From 2 to 12 May, the festival will offer an exciting program of free and low-cost events across Melbourne. You can enjoy music, dance, theatre, film, exhibitions, markets, fashion parades, family-friendly events, talks and symposiums at more than 25 venues around town.

YIRRAMBOI means ‘tomorrow’ in the shared local languages of the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung peoples and the 2019 Festival has this idea at its core, presenting a future-focused celebration of the sophistication, diversity and continuous evolution of the longest living culture in the world.

Although it is always hard to choose, a highlight for us will be Vicki Van Hout’s plenty serious Talk Talkwhich explores the complexities of negotiating culture across disciplines, genres and eras.
